Camille Walala: Colorful art inspired by African tribes


PRINT - DESIGN - INTERIORS... three keywords that best describe Camille's work and life.

 

 

 

Her work is easily recognizable and inspiring. The color combinations she uses are lively and playful and her unique style is influenced by the African tribes and the Memphis Movement from the 80’s. She personally describes it as TribalPop.

 

 

About Camille

A graduate in textile design from the University of Brighton, Camille Walala established her studio and brand in East London in 2009, and has since evolved from textile-based work to art direction, interior design and large-scale civic art and installation projects.

 

 

Drawing on influences including the Memphis Movement, the Ndebele tribe and Victor Vasarely, Walala has an irrepressible enthusiasm for playful, graphic patterns that invoke a smile. Her dedication to positivity, optimistic typography and bold use of pattern and colour have seen her transform urban landscapes across the world, and earned her clients ranging from Converse and Armani to Nintendo and Facebook.
