Faiq Ahmed | Carpet Designer

About Faiq Ahmed

Faiq Ahmed, a carpet designer born in 1982 in Azerbaijan and originally from Sumqayit, graduated from the Department of Fine Arts at Baku University in 2004. He is best known for his sculptures and their fusion with carpet art, creating abstract and surreal concepts. He sees carpets as models with complex symbols and strives to extract new content from them. Using digital technology and traditional carpet weaving machines, Faiq Ahmed challenges and transforms carpets, one of the oldest handicraft industries. His carpets come alive, rising from the ground, embracing each other, weeping, and turning into art objects. Each of Faiq Ahmed's carpets has a story that, if written, would undoubtedly be a surreal masterpiece, something akin to the guidance of blind buffaloes or Kafkaesque metamorphosis.
