The Tango pattern design started as a large abstract canvas, I painted in 2013.
I was looking for original curving shapes that could be extracted to use as wallpaper. I drastically reduced the number of colours in a photo of the painting, then recoloured areas to make the different elements of Tango. The design alternates a flipped copy with a normal version. Varying the scale and colours has created a wide range of unique patterns.
There are now seven distinct sets of patterns within the Tango portfolio. The visuals shown on this page are from the later designs; starting with D, then getting more dramatic do design G.
Rolling over the images – or clicking on them – shows the code if you would like to discuss this design.
