This is the Murage wallpaper at our client’s home in Melbourne.
We hadn’t seen the Murage design blown up on wallpaper before and the effect was stunning.

Exciting times – today we are launching our first tile collection in three years.
Alchemy consists of a collection of five tile designs, Luce, Murage, Sandal, Allure and Knosp.
The collection tells the story of an age of opulence belonging to the past and references a modern appreciation for history and culture inherent in the spaces we inhabit.
Dominic Crinson has reworked medieval patterns and 14-15th century Damasks in paint and ink and transformed these motifs by digitising and overworking these patterns with a burnished texture. This collection will lend any space a sense of authenticity.
Is this Crinson’s finest collection to date? We’d love to hear from you.
Over the coming weeks I will be bringing out a new range of tiles and wallpapers.
The images are built up from paintings I have been working on influenced by mediaeval patterning and 14-15th century Damasks.
It doesn’t matter where you are located as we will delivery your wallpaper order to you free wherever you are – be it Melbourne, New York, Paris or London.

I’m now working on some ideas that connect my design and artistic practices.
In my Melbourne studio I split the day creating art in the form of painting and designing in the form of the tile and wallpaper work. In previous collections I would at times use a painted image to form the basis of a tile or wallpaper design but apart from that there has been little connection between the two. Now however these two practices have crossed paths and I find myself painting on the surface of my wallpaper, using it like I would a canvas and intervening in the pattern.
I intend to develop these into individual artworks so that they can be pasted on to a wall as they are or framed. Alternatively they could be installed as unique drops within the pattern repeat, as if the painting has been done directly on your walls. Ideally customers would be able to choose from a limited edition of painted wallpaper drops to add to their order of the standard pattern. Interior Designers/Architects would then have the creative freedom to place the artwork in the space.
Taking the painted surface back to the digital from where it originated, I have edited some close-up images of the Gato1 intervention in Photoshop to create new patterns. These can now be used as floor tiles, wall tiles or wallpaper patterns in their own right. Below shows an image combining all these Gato painted patterns.

I’ll be posting more in the next couple of weeks meanwhile I would love to hear from you!
