John Nalewaja's experienced artists have restored entire rooms of valuable wallpaper and have also done jobs as simple as in-painting switchplates and vent covers. Here are some examples of commonly requested artwork.
As a cost-saving measure, John frequently installs plain blue sky above doors or windows and then an artist in-paints details that 'join' the panels.
Scenes can also continue across doors. In the example below, an artist painted the scene on the door and the door frame, extending the scene between two panels of Zuber's Views of Brazil. Essentially, the artist 'Zuber-ized' the door to make it visually disappear in the scene.
Clients sometimes change their minds about certain features in the scenes. In this situation, a client requested that an 'angry' peacock be painted out,
Successfully installing a scenic paper on a staircase requires some artwork to join the panels and create a cohesive scene.
Especially when papers are being reinstalled, artwork can extend a panel, either above or below a scene. In the example below, panels were extended both above and below, extending the scene from 72" to 144".
Finishing a Scene
In this example, the client chose plain silk for a corner that would be filled with furniture and then decided to finish the scene behind the furniture. The artist painted a new, minimal scene on the plan silk to create a perfectly finished scene.
Handblocked and handpainted wallpapers will often have uneven joins across panels and clients frequently request artwork to fix those joins. Below are some examples of artwork that finishes joins.
