20 Glitched-Out Rugs By Azerbaijani Artist Faig Ahmed

Published 11 months ago

Faig Ahmed is an Azerbaijani artist whose rug designs prove that they can be so much more than just decorations on the floor of your grandparents’ living room (or walls if you’re from Eastern Europe). In his bio, the artist says that his works “reimagine ancient crafts and create new visual boundaries by deconstructing traditions and stereotypes”, and once you see his works, you’ll instantly understand what he means by that.

The designs that Faig creates appear glitched-out, psychedelic, and are always guaranteed to make you look twice. Check out some of his most impressive pieces in the gallery below!

In an earlier interview with The Guardian, Faig said that he sees rugs as something very stable. “Carpet is the result of ages. Even 2,500 years ago there were similar patterns, similar techniques to today,” said the artist. “The center and the borders are like a social structure, giving the idea of everything we know.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
