Gran Electrica

Brooklyn, NY

Custom

When one of our favorite local restaurants decided to open a new Mexican joint called Gran Electrica they approached Jon about making a custom wallpaper to add some personality to the space. A Day of the Dead/Calaveras style toile reflecting the new hood was decided upon and images of iconic DUMBO neighborhood scenes and appropriate Posada type art were chosen for Dan Funderburgh to work into a pattern. The result is a humorous look at the hood through a skeletal Mexican viewpoint and includes Jane’s Carousel, the Watchtower, kids in strollers with Crocs, hipsters on single speeds and cell phone talking yoga mat toting moms. You can follow the lightning bolts to find the restaurant. Pure DUMBO. Kinda Posada. ¡Que bueno!
