Introducing the Bella Vita Bar - a new food trailer based in the Riverina area of NSW, Australia decorated with watercolour floral decals created by myself here at ELK Prints. Cassie approached me with a brief to create something unique and floral and pretty to decorate her new food trailer serving Italian dishes inspired by her Nonna's cooking. I took my inspiration from the vibrant colours of an antipasto board and featuring the olive branches so synonymous with Italian cooking.

To create the decals each individual grouping of flowers was painted onto seperate A3 sheets before being scanned in at 1200dpi and stitched together in Photoshop to produce a high resolution quality decal for the trailer. Tradition and technology working in harmony.
Bella Vita - it means "beautiful life" and it's definitely a concept I relate strongly too and am inspired by. I think we should all surround ourselves with beautiful things and appreciate and admire the beauty inherent within every soul and every object that surrounds us. Seek out the positivity in the world and let go of the negatives. Just as every flower in the world is different and beautiful so too are we as humans.... this was such a beautiful project to work on and I enjoyed the whole process of creating these images.
