Hippos & Tapirs Blanket by Olivia Wendel
Olivia Wendel is an artist and textile designer based in Brooklyn. Through scarves, blankets, and pillows, she translates her hand-painted art into functional yet whimsical textiles in an industry otherwise dominated by digital design. Wendel sees textiles as a way to bring paintings and illustrations to life, expressing personal narratives through a variety of materials and processes. While figures remain still on flat paper, printing them onto fabric gives them movement and presence. Employing painting as a form of choreography, Wendel invents figures who dance in a realm between memories and dreams.
This lightweight blanket can be used to keep you cozy, hung on the wall as a tapestry, or function as a picnic blanket.
