Carnovsky, the Italian masters of artworks that change under red, blue or green lights, is back at Blik with 10 new designs for our lines of Pattern Wall Tiles and Surface Skins.

The result is an entwined mash-up of flowers, plants, sea creatures, landscapes and mammals with the different layers being revealed when viewed in red, green or blue light. Included with each Carnovsky graphic is a set of 3 RGB glasses so you can see what’s hidden.

New Surface Skins Designed by Rex Ray

New Surface Skins Designed by Rex RayWe’re excited to introduce new Surface Skins by artist Rex Ray + a Giveaway! Intrigued by our Surface Skins and the idea of bringing graphic goodness to humdrum furnishings, artist Rex Ray created 4 designs for his line of graphics at Blik: Wonky, Mirrors & Tears, Patch and Ellipse. Surface Skins are durable, self-adhesive art prints that allow you to personalize any large surface in your home or office such as a desk, table, cabinet or bookshelf.

Rex Ray is known for his collages of pattern, color and shapes and he puts his own spin on his Surface Skins designs. Each is a colorful collage of ellipses, splotches, and some have cut outs. Rex specifically wanted real cut outs in two of his Surface Skin designs so that the original furnishing’s material shows through the cut outs and adds it’s own texture, pattern or color to the design. Because of this, we recommend adding a glass top over Wonky and Ellipse Surface Skins so the skin and your furnishing don’t get damaged by a spilt drink.

#SHOWUSYOURBLIK FOR JUNE

 
Here at Blik, we love our fans, so we would like to reward two #SHOWUSYOURBLIK winners for sharing their wall graphics with us!

Thanks Diana Lien for submitting Ride ~ Surface Skin up at Outlier Solutions and Nancy Dellarocco for submitting Koi by Ilan Dei.

Wondering how Nancy put Koi outside? According to her, “I broke all the Blik rule, so that I could have an outdoor koi pond on my old garage wall this summer. A little caulk helped adhere it.” Way to be creative, Nancy! Keep submitting and supporting!

KEITH HARING ~ SURFACE SKINS NOW AT BLIK

KEITH HARING ~ SURFACE SKINS NOW AT BLIK

Yahoo! Surface Skins by Blik are back with six circular designs from iconic artist and frequent collaborator, Keith Haring. Similar to the concept of personalizing your cellphone or laptop, Surface Skins let you to bring art off the walls and onto other objects in your home including cabinets, finished wood, laminate, metal and glass. Move away from walls and transform the everyday with a little help from Keith Haring.

KEITH HARING ~ SURFACE SKINS NOW AT BLIK

Fun fact: the Haring designs were originally designed for other circular products like buttons, watches, CD’s and a painting.

You’ve met WRAPPED ~ Surface Skins. Now It’s Haring’s Turn.
Surface Skins by Keith Haring are six circle skins in three diameters: 30” ($35), 36” ($45) and 42” ($60). The designs restore luster to otherwise lackluster coffee and dining tables. Haring is best known for his iconic-line drawings of radiant babies and barking dogs and these designs capture his unique style in a circular format well-suited to a round table. Haring’s people and dogs form a congregation – dancing and moving around the table in celebration.

The six designs: Untitled (Twisting Man) , Untitled (Dancers), Untitled (Rainbow Dancers), Untitled (Radiant Baby), Untitled (Flying Clock) and Untitled (Dancing Dog) are inviting those who gather at the table to join them.

Surface Skins launched last month with 12 skins from Venice-based WRAPPED and we are excited to follow-up the momentum with circular designs by Keith Haring. The skins were developed with a new film that allows the design to be “floated” over the selected surface during installation. The skin’s lamination provides a durable protection to surfaces and makes them easy to apply and remove.

Wonder how easy it really is? Watch and see how magic is made.

Your new motto, “Old surface, new skin!”

SURFACE SKINS FAQ:
1. What are these Surface Skins you speak of?
Surface Skins is a brand new line of super durable, self-adhesive art that allows you to personalize just about any large surface in your home or office quickly and easily. Use them to cover desks, tables, cabinets, bookshelves or whatever. Surface Skins were developed to bring some graphic goodness to boring furnishings everywhere.

2. What are the Surface Skins designs?
We’re collaborating with several Blik artists to bring you a new design created for the Surface Skins line. First off, we’re teaming up with our Venice-based neighbors WRAPPED to launch 12 Surface Skins based on WRAPPED’s artfully-crafted gift wrap. Their wrap uses high-res photography of animal hides, insects and modern art with such vibrancy and clarity that the surface skin looks real to the touch. Surface Skins by WRAPPED come in four different rectangular shapes and are designed to be trimmed down to any surface or table size. The designs are: Homage, Clement, Legal, Abbot Kinney, Burst, Gouache, Broadway, Ride, Mildred, Oversee, Stratus and Still. The graphics will fit the following size rectangular shapes:
48″ x 24″ – $42
60″ x 30″ – $64
72″ x 36″ – $90
80″ x 30″ – $87

3. What took you so long to bring Surface Skins to me?
Until recently, there really wasn’t a proper film that could cover a surface with ease and not damage it. We’ll credit Blik co-founder Scott Flora (we fancy him a revolutionary) as having the idea a few years ago and finally finding the new material to make it a possibility.
