Azerbaijan based mixed-media artist Faig Ahmed breaks and redefines the visual boundaries of the iconic middle eastern carpets, which are generally characterised by it’s beautiful symmetrical patterns. In his study about the artistic qualities of Azerbaijani traditional rugs, Ahmed distorts the conventional structure and randomly rearranges the resulting components of the traditional composition and then reinterprets these fragments with contemporary sculptural forms.
“To be honest, things I do are now always right and beautiful ones, I do it without thinking, it’s my instantaneous expression. Same changes happen in the world of today each day – ideas that have been formed for ages are being changed in moments. I just make bold experiments, putting them into the art scene, trusting myself and my art in viewers will.” – says Faig Ahmed
