Carpets are not only for floors! Azerbaijani artist Faig Ahmed has been designing and creating surrealist and sculptural carpets. You may wonder how a carpet can be sculptural. Here is how! Our artist is not a traditional carpet weaver. He weaves colorful carpets that look like melting onto the floor.

Faig Ahmed is a multidisciplinary artist who has a different approach to art. His carpets are works of art, but they are also ready to use. His art is like poetry, consisting of symbols and metaphors. According to some critics, the Azerbaijani artist is kind of a linguist who depicts philosophical and aesthetic ideas by weaving carpets.

There is a reason why everyone calls Faig Ahmed a poet. It is because the artist is a big admirer of great poets such as Shams Tabrizi or Nizami Ganjavi. These two Persian poets inspired Ahmed and led him to weave spiritual carpets. The artist has a series of carpets under the inspiration of two 12th-century Persian poets. Moreover, he exhibited his series at Sapar Contemporary. The prices of his carpets were between USD 70,000 and USD 200,000!

The whole world knows the artist for his melting rug art and the carpets Faig Ahmed creates have both a satisfying and an illusionist side. As you may guess, Ahmed does not create these carpets all of a sudden. First, he sketches a draft digitally, then finalizes the form of the carpets, and lastly, he prints the digital sketches. Every knot is valuable. Therefore, he sketches every single detail!

The last part of these amazing carpets is production. Faig Ahmed delivers the sketches of the carpets to the local carpet manufacturers. It is said that skilled Azerbaijani women work hard and weave the carpets for up to six months. So, we have learned how valuable these oriental carpets by Faig Ahmed are. If you have a chance, you should definitely go to exhibitions and see these eye-catching wonders.
