The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Jolby

Good Wednesday everybody! This week there’s a double header by a couple of amazing guys, Colby Nichols and Josh Kenyon, who work together under the moniker of Jolby. Though Colby lives in Portland and Josh lives in Chicago, they expertly manage to work together, creating some really epic and beautiful pieces.

The wallpapers above are preview of their upcoming show at the Subtext Gallery in San Diego called Home Is Where You Make It. The show is a narrative about “a boy named William who, after suffering a great loss, leaves his familiar town of Seaside to discover what “home” really means inside the depths of an aging forest.” From what I’ve seen of the show it’s going to be amazing. They’ve made around 40 silkscreened pieces, there will be plush dolls, and I’m sure a ton more awesome stuff.

The show opens this Saturday, February 21st, from 6-10pm, and runs until March 22nd, so if you happen to be in San Diego, be sure to stop by and check it out.
