This Samoan Tapa wall art set brings a unique contemporary look to a tribal design. While the original source for this design was a large tapa cloth, 136″ x 87″, we achieved a more dramatic look by focusing on only a portion of the whole. The original piece had been painted free-hand using quite a variety of colors, including black, yellow, aquamarine, violet-blue, red, pink, and rust brown. We dramatically reduced the color palette to three colors on white. Finally, we opted for a horizontal pairing of the two modules. Thus, we created an installation with an overall width of over three times that of its height. The resulting design creates a narrative line with a beginning, middle, and end, almost like that of a story.
