Each project is an opportunity to redefine the possibilities of an interior space and create an experiment in living that can push the boundaries of any contemporary environment. The images I create work in tandem with the surface or objects that they cover — walls, ceramics, glassware, furniture and textiles for now — but it’s the possibilities of the materials and the stories you want to tell that lead me in new creative directions. My first line of wall coverings is rooted in architectural motifs and urban landscapes that invite in nature to create warmth and history while leaving behind a personal imprint.
The first collection was successfully introduced in 2012 and now for sale here!

Renowned curator Barry R. Harwood [Brooklyn Museum of Art] said the following about the Andaluz Collection…
“Although the 250+ samples from the wallpaper collection at the Brooklyn Museum date mostly from about 1850-1950, the small explosion of new wallpaper designs by local artists has prompted acquisitions of examples of these thoroughly modern and original coverings. The work of Stefan Hengst is especially exciting and of particular interest as he successfully straddles traditional themes as seen in his Andaluz collection that is directly inspired by exotic Hispano-Moresque motives from the Alhambra in Spain on one hand; and then in NY Trash, on the other, he has created a highly original design in response to the everyday modern world around us.”
