Wayne meets Matisse

June 10, 2016

Two of my favourite artists are Picasso and Matisse, and I tend to gravitate towards anything in the spirit of either artist. So you’ll understand why I really like the work of Brooklyn artist, Wayne Pate. Both Madame Blue and Goddess would fit in effortlessly on our picture wall, as would this whimsical paloma. There is a strong Grecian influence –– in the abundance of urns and olive branches and overall colour palette –– that appeals to me, also. I wonder if Pate (who is married to designer, Rebecca Taylor) has seen the work of Alekos Fassianos? Take a look at his lampshades –– lovely for both home and head!
