Artist Wayne Pate roams far and wide making sketches and taking mental snapshots that become fodder for his work. When we last caught up with him, Pate had channeled his year of living in Paris into a fabric and wallpaper collection for Studio Four NYC. He and family, longtime Brooklynites, have since alighted in New Zealand, where his wife, fashion design Rebecca Taylor, hails from.
Working out of his home studio in Wellington, Pate has of late been taking inspiration from past journeys in Southern Italy, and turning architectural details, vistas, and, as he says, “feelings” into a just-launched fabric and wallpaper collection for Studio Four NYC called Pompeii. Here are some of the standouts and how they came to be.
Next stop for Pate and family? The plan is to return to their original home base in Brooklyn in fall 2024. Keep up with Pate @waynepate.
