Inspired by the painter/designer Gerrit Willem Dijsselhof (1866 -1924)
we have painted this new wallpaper. Beautiful green, ochre and blue
colors in the background creating this
setting of various fish in a pond. Emerging water-lilies, a pike,
sticklebacks and other fish are swimming around in this work of
wallpaper-art. More info: snijder-co.nl

Featuring Marcelo Gimens and Jaap Snijder, Dutch Wallpaper artists based in Rotterdam.
Inspired by the botanical book “Historia Naturalis
Brasiliae” commissioned by Count Johan Maurits
(Governor Dutch-Brazil 1637-1644), we created
this wallpaper for this impressive house in the
center of Amsterdam.
The wallpaper depicts the Mata Atlântica around
São Paulo, Brazil. With a flora and fauna setting of
a typical landscape of São Paulo country side with
the mountain Pico do Jaraguá, the purple Manaca
da Serra, the yellow Guapuruvu and of course the
little capibara’s under a Flamboyant tree.
Both wallpapers are painted separated in our
studio with the same light as the conservatory to
create more depth and realisme.
We used a grey-green color scheme to match
the existing paneling and ceilings of the historical
rooms. In total we have painted over 24 square
meters over a period of approximately 4 months.
