Wayne Pate’s Pompeii: The Artist’s New Italian-Inspired Wallpaper and Fabric from Studio Four NYC

June 27, 2023

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.

A friend in advertising found him a job in his firm’s art department and Pate went to on become a leading art director. He’s now a full-time artist.
