Marilyn Monoprint

Andy Warhol created a series of Marilyn Monroe silkscreen paintings shortly after her suicide in August 1962. Each piece in the photo-silkscreened paintings and screen prints derive from a publicity photo of Monroe from the 1953 film Niagra, which Warhol helped make into the most widespread, recognizable image of the actress. Towards the end of his career, Warhol revisited his most popular works from the 1960s and printed them as negatives, known as the Reversal series. Flavor Paper emulates the Marilyn Monroe Reversal paintings through a unique printing technique called monoprinting in which paint is applied directly to the screen prior to printing Marilyn Reversal overtop. This monoprint technique creates one-of-a-kind print impressions; a wall composed of these large-scale prints would be extremely varied, yet consistent with a unified Marilyn foreground. Available in Black with a Technicolor blend, White with a Deep Blue and Burgundy blend, Silver Diamond Dust with a Hot Pink blend on Chrome Mylar, and Gold Diamond Dust on Bright Gold Mylar. Blends can incorporate matte, gloss, transparent, glittered and/or Day-Glo inks. Marilyn Monoprint is also customizable with two main color blends and liberally added accents.

*Please note: when printing full-color transparent background screens as used in Marilyn Monoprint White, there is an inevitable overlap line every 5’. The line is about 1/12” thick and we do our best to ensure they are as discreet as possible (see B-A-N-A-N-A-S, Cyan Chrome). Please contact us if you have any concerns.

Process

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.
