Medical illustrator Emily Evans has released a range of exciting Mexican Day of the Dead Sugar Skull wallpaper adding to her range of homewares. This includes a series of histology dessert plates which sold out within hours of going on sale at our Street Anatomy Gallery Store.
The elegant design of the Sugar Skull is representative of the Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations, the folkloric skull an iconic symbol of life and death. The intricately illustrated skull has been given a sophisticated twist by replicating it in gold on a rich matt dark charcoal, making it a luxurious addition to any interior.
Available at the Street Anatomy Gallery Store!
Although we have tried our best to give the most accurate photographic representation of the wallpaper, we urge you to buy a sample to ensure you know what you are purchasing as returns will not be accepted unless the wallpaper is faulty. We are not liable for any damage or problems caused by faulty hanging. Hanging instructions are included with each purchase.
It is the responsibility of the customer to have correctly measured the amount of wallpaper needed, this is not a service we offer.

Emily Evans of AnatomyUK gives us an exclusive look at the Day of the Dead Skull wallpaper she recently designed. This unique wallpaper was developed specially for Barrio Central and Barrio North, two wonderfully colorful Latin bars located in Soho and Islington in London.
Emily extensively researched the Mexican Day of the Dead tradition and sugar skull representations before designing the perfect skull for the wallpaper pattern.
This high quality wallpaper is meticulously screen printed by hand using metallic gold ink on peacock, charcoal, and raspberry. The gold ink makes the pattern shine brilliantly under a variety of lighting. This wallpaper is stunning in person, so if you’re in the London area, stop by Barrio Central or Barrio North (in the toilets) and see it!
Designed by Emily Evans. Made in London, UK.

Over the years we’ve always been tickled by any showering of love for this little website. All of you who’ve expressed interest, who’ve been eager to contribute, who’ve been a faithful reader—you make us so happy. Recently we were over the moon to see our favorite “You are Here” letter press print created by Roll & Tumble Press in a gorgeous nursery featured on Apartment Therapy (a much loved blog around here)!
It got us thinking—where do you hang your awesome Street Anatomy art? As you can see above, I have a copy of the poster hanging up at work. Just a little reminder of those I love while I attempt creativity every day. Perhaps your art is in the kitchen? Bedroom? Entryway? Office?
Send in your pictures (as a reminder j.vonglahn [a] gmail.com), we’d like to feature some of your beautiful spaces!

Portland-based glass studio, Esque Studio, run by Justin Parker and Andi Kovel, creates “modern, functional, concept-based glassware aimed at the design industry and away from the pedestal. These guys have become huge, leading the trend in designer glassware and even rising to one of Time Magazine’s most influential international design studios.
I just love the fact that they added anatomical glasswork design to their collection! I don’t know much about glass blowing, but blowing glass into the shape of a skull seems incredibly difficult.
The pieces above were all exquisitely designed by Justin Parker.

Clone Chaise, 2005
Electroluminescent display, sequencing electronics, acrylic, steel 600 x 750 x 1850 mm
This anatomical luminous lounger, of which only 6 were made, was created by British designer Sam Buxton. The lounger can actually detect someone’s presence, lighting up when someone is near. As the individual interacts with the chair, the chair is brought to life, with a beating heart and breathing lungs.
The Clone Chaise is part of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
