Malene Barnett Teams Up With Lulu and Georgia on Wallcovering Line Inspired by the Sea
Artist-activist Malene Barnett, founder of the Black Artists + Designers Guild, is an authority on cultural traditions and art practices in the African diaspora. Envisioning a contemporary Black experience rooted in these customs, she uses her art as a way to uncover, understand, and celebrate her heritage. Working with Lulu and Georgia, she debuts Kindred, a line that translates her intricate hand-built clay sculptures and vessels into standout wallpaper. Printed in York, Pennsylvania, the five patterns include Mosaic, dotty and metallic-accented, and Bequia, its ripples inspired by the Caribbean Sea settling into meditative repetition that’s as beguiling as the glint of sunlight on ocean waves.
