Dan Funderburgh is a Brooklyn-based illustrator, artist and wallpaper designer whose creations are rooted in the world of decorative arts.
Funderburgh was born in Seattle and reared in the midwest, eventually receiving a BFA from the University of Kansas with a focus in illustration. After moving to New York in 2001, he established a partnership with the now Brooklyn-based wallpaper studio Flavorpaper, where his designs are hand-screen printed.
His wallpaper designs have been featured at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair and at Pulse Miami, and are included in the Cooper-Hewitt's permanent collection. Occasional collaborations with companies like Brooks, Furni, and Gravis have allowed his work to appear on bicycle seats, furniture and luggage.
Dan's personal and gallery work includes letterpress and screen prints, sculptures and installations that play off of historical ornamentation. Revealing an acute appreciation for both the baroque and utilitarian, Dan's work often combines the language of ornament with the shapes of tools and household objects.
