Faig Ahmed is an artist known for his ornate and culturally themed sculptures. Resembling melted textiles, his carpet creations are inspired by his life in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The masterpieces put a modern twist on tradition and are an updated translation of historical rugs. Faig Ahmed is a graduate from the Azerbaijan State Academy of Fine Art's Sculpture program and is also skilled in painting, video and installation art. The multi-talented artist references traditional Azerbaijan rugs in this series of sculptures and experiments with distorted fabrics that are wall hung to create a greater spatial impact.
The large-scale sculptures are visually striking when photographed but are even more impactful for those who are lucky enough to experience them in person.
