Please don't steal our images, yeah?


What is this?

Composed of two panels "Indi" captures the spontaneous action of a flock of black birds in motion. The main cluster of birds is near the center of the panel height. The photographically-captured image is printed in black with blue highlights on a white textured ground.

Why is this in our collection?

The wallpaper imagery is produced photographically and captures a moment in time. "Indi" shows a flock of blackbirds taking flight and "Ara" captures the intricacies of a waft of smoke. The designs are delicate, provocative and poetic. There is no vertical repeat in either of these works giving them a more random feeling which is typical of Trove's work. "Indi" is a two-panel width and repeats horizontally every 67 inches while "Ara" is a single panel width that repeats every 33.5 inches. All of Trove's wallpapers are eco-friendly. Printed with UV-resistant, organic eco-solvent inks on commercial grade post-consumer recycled paper they are coated with a non-toxic wax-based coating making them washable.
