Internationally renowned Azerbaijani artist Faig Ahmed is among
a new wave of contemporary creatives expanding the conventional
notion of craft.
Ahmed is best known for utilizing the traditional decorative craft
of carpet-making to create contemporary sculptural works of art.
Ahmed’s creative skills also span varied mediums such as installation,
video, and embroidery, all of which can be seen in his upcoming solo
exhibition at PCA&D.
Ahmed’s exploration of fresh new visual forms challenges our
perception of traditions through iconic cultural objects. He has
exhibited his works in cities worldwide including New York, Berlin,
