From afar, 'City Park' looks like an elegant toile wallpaper print. Take a closer look, however, and you'll see elements that are far more unsavory: pigeons, fire hydrants and rats.

'City Park' wallpaper is hand-screened and was designed by Dan Funderburgh especially for Flavor Paper. It's a quirky look at the underpinnings of everyday metropolitan life, and a clever juxtaposition between highbrow and lowbrow culture.

Implications - The interesting wallpaper is made on pewter Mylar and the pictures are colored in black. It is amazing that ordinary objects can be painted into elegant-looking wall covers. The 'City Park' wallpaper doesn't quite look like it is meant for a home, but it would definitely jazz-up an office space.
