Faig Ahmed(Azerbaijan)



Faig Ahmed is an internationally recognized artist from Baku, Azerbaijan, who represented Azerbaijan at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
 He is well known for his conceptual works that utilize traditional decorative craft and the visual language of carpets in contemporary sculptural works of art. His works reimagine ancient crafts and create new visual boundaries by deconstructing traditions and stereotypes.
Ahmed's artworks engage the viewers through their unexpected marriage of traditional crafts, steeped in history, with hyper-contemporary, digitally distorted images often in the form of pixilation, three-dimensional shapes, and melting paint that alters the pattern on the rugs. He employs computers to sketch his works and chooses intricate traditional methods of carpet-weaving techniques to print his designs on carpets.
 Ahmed has exhibited his works worldwide including group and solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Istanbul, Moscow, Toronto, Mumbai, Rome, Israel, Sydney, and Dubai. In 2013, he was nominated for the Jameel Prize 3 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Ahmed's works have been recently exhibited in several museum solos and group shows all over the United States, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Bellevue Arts Museum, Washington; the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland; Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design; Boca Raton Museum of Art; Newport Art Museum; Honolulu Museum of Art; Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane; San Luis Obispo Museum of Art; as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (MACRO), the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Sydney, Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania and the Textile Museum of Sweden, Borås, Istanbul Modern, Istanbul, New Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Aga Khan Museum, Toronto, The Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt.
