Faig Ahmed (19 pics)




“Carpet vandalist” and installation artist Faig Ahmed is from and based out of Baku, Azerbaijan. Taking one of the most iconic symbols of the East, the Persian rug, he changes its traditional form to a more modern contemporary style.

Disassembling the conventional structure of the rug, he randomly rearranges the threads combining them with contemporary sculptural forms to create a Persian rug for the 21st century. With his art, Faig Ahmed is “destroying the stereotypes of the tradition and creating new modern boundaries.” His art is a wonderful representation of the social and political change that is happening through out the east.
