I was tipped off about an exhibition at Manchester's Whitwoth Gallery called the Walls Are Talking. It's got some great wallpapers that I hadn't seen before and of course the classics that it's great to see again.

The first room's walls are covered with this really intense Ivy wallpaper. There is no room to breath in this print - luckily it's a huge room with massive windows. It really does feel oppressive which is strange considering it's just little green leaves. Well worth the trip to Manchester.

Below Mao by Andy Warhol

Below Right Hand Lady by Allen Jones
Below An Impression of Everything by Michael Craig-Martin (this is a huge wall display, not done justice by this image - really worth going to see)

A new one for me includes David Shrigley's "Industrial Estate" wallpaper
