Tidal Fool

When it comes to exploring environmental dilemmas to connect the past, present and pending future, Duke Riley doesn’t tread water. Rather, the Brooklyn-based artist dives deep to create conversational works that reveal the realities of local pollution and global maritime effects…in a playful yet thoughtful, and clearly captivating style. In Tidal Fool, Duke depicts the trashy truth of what lies beneath with illustrations of everything from littered technology and takeout, to personal paraphernalia (some saucy items like condoms and vibrators floating about, too) — yet turns the tide to a positive with mermaids and mermen gathering the debris to instill a wave of hope and whimsy in this sea of plenty. Net, net: whether you’re working bathroom, bedroom or boardroom walls, this design will wash spaces with entertaining Flavor for as long as you keep it afloat.    

**Please Note: While Tidal Fool flows like a mural, it is designed as a pattern — and is printed in 8', 10' or 12' x 52" rolls. To help seasmlessly bring your vision to the wall, we created THIS GUIDE that outlines the individual drop options for you to choose from. So, please have a look, select the continuous content you’re craving, and after you place your order we'll give you a ring to dig into the details.


P.S. We originally whipped up this Flavor for Duke's DEATH TO THE LIVING, Long Live Trash exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Hope you caught it; it was spectacular!

Estimated Quantity accounts for a design's repeat and match, as well as the wall dimensions you enter. That said, we recommend a professional installer to provide you with exact quantities required for your job and as such Flavor Paper is not liable for incorrect quantities. Our Hand screened wall papers come untrimmed. We print and package in triple rolls [45' x 27"] whenever possible to minimize waste during installation. However, occasionally due to our high quality standards, your order may come packaged as singles, doubles or triples. If you require a triple roll due to the height of your wall, please contact us to confirm this is possible.

Flavor Paper produces wallpaper by hand screened and digital printing, sometimes both for special projects. All aspects of production are in-house, so we can maintain our exacting perfectionist standards. We use water based or eco-solvent inks to be as green as possible and only print on the finest materials. Flavor Paper quality is unsurpassed. All Flavor Paper is produced to order, so you are free to interchange colors and grounds with handscreened wallpaper and can choose scale and colors for digital wallpaper. It’s your world. Get what you want.

Installation Guides

Wallpaper installation is a serious craft and takes many years of practice and experience to become a master hanger. Flavor Paper prints on some finicky materials with matches and layouts that can get confusing so, for the sake of your walls, we highly recommend using a professional installer.

You can find a qualified local wallpaper installer through the Wallcovering Installers Association.
