Wrapping paper for your walls? Yep, you heard us right. We are thrilled to team up with our Venice neighbors WRAPPED to launch a new line of graphics based on WRAPPED’s artfully-crafted gift wrap. We love the idea of working with another Venice-based company and combining our collective talents! The WRAPPED x Blik line includes Shadow, 90291 and Charles Arnoldi for Wrapped, Macro.
BLIK x WRAPPED
For Shadow and 90291 – think wrapping paper for your walls. Blik has given WRAPPED’s artistic gift wrap a Blik twist and created a wall wrap. Made from self-adhesive vinyl, the wall wraps (which have four or six sheets in a package) are durable and meant to adhere to any smooth flat surface. Macro is based on Charles Arnoldi’s (WRAPPED co-founder Ryland Arnoldi’s father) massive artwork Middle America. Recreate part of the original piece by assembling Macro’s brilliant assortment of colors and shapes.
WHAT IS WRAPPED?
Launched in 2011 by Ryland Arnoldi and Sam Seidman, the duo set out to do what they love most: translate their passion for art and nature beyond wrapping paper. As a result, they introduced a groundbreaking idea: wrapping paper as art rather than a disposable shell. All his life, Ryland has observed his artist-father protect his work table with butcher paper that became saturated with paint. As a child, Ryland watched him tear off pieces of the paint-spattered material and use it as gift wrap. That experience showed him how great wrapping paper can transform the experience of receiving a gift into something truly extraordinary.

WIN A SIGNED CHARLES ARNOLDI BOOK
Since Charles Arnoldi’s work inspired WRAPPED, we thought it only fitting to give away a signed book that presents the work of Arnoldi. Titled Charles Arnoldi, the 360-page book is a beautiful representation of his paintings and includes a forward by Frank Gehry. Arnoldi has been described as an artist who “draws in space” to create his unique assemblage works of art. You’ll be automatically entered to win the 360-page book (published by Radius Books) just by ordering one of the new WRAPPED graphics from November 8-14, 2012.
UPDATE: Nikolas P. is the winner of the Charles Arnoldi book. Congratulations!
Details: Due to the large size and weight of the book, this contest is only open to residents in the United States. Please also note that Charles Arnoldi’s signature is intentionally smeared. A winner will be picked using Random.org and announced on November 15, 2012.
