Timorous Beasties

Timorous Beasties was founded in Glasgow in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who met while studying textile design at Glasgow School of Art. Their jarring and unconventional subjects marry together contemporary themes like machine guns, crack addicts, and urban rot with the recognizable and sentimental scenes of old-world design found in 1800's Toile de Jouy wallpaper. So what was an upper class style (toile) becomes a record of urban ills. These newest designs were displayed at this year's ICFF.
