"Paint Grass Cloth" is the Google search phrase you should use - there are lots of articles on the web, from Houzz and BH&G and others on doing this. Bear in mind, HARD to make look right - actually a stain is commonly generally the best looking and retains the most grass texture without matting, which is generally the problem with paints.

Bear in mind the grass will eventually degrade and start breaking up and falling off even with paint, and also in areas where the walls get very cold in winter you can easily get mildew/mold in it due to condensation at the wall. Not to mention the possibility of insects like crickets pulling up their chairs for dinner (especially with rice paper).

My recommendation - unless specifically looking for the grassy texture (in which case a stain or penetrating dilute paint like a color-fast art acrylic would be best), I would take it off and start with a clean wall for whatever effect you want.
