Ethically Studded “Diamond Power” Wallpaper
Candy Depew, 2012
Hand-Screen Printed Wallpaper
3' W x 8' H

Candy Depew works from her Old City studio, CandyCoated Center, creating hand screen-printed patterns on paper, textiles, and other materials. She creates limited edition pieces as well as unique ones, using specific stylized graphics that have become her signature. One of these incorporates the Diamond, which she points out is made of carbon, as are all living things. Depew believes all of us are connected through carbon, and she uses the diamond as a symbol of its metaphysical and spiritual properties. This wallpaper panel has black ink on a natural ground, but when the colorway changes, the diamond morphs into a different rock — a ruby, sapphire, etc. RE
