    Hanging carpets that seem to melt off the wall, detailed rugs that suddenly transition to pixel art and 3D optical illusions are just some of the mind-boggling tricks that Faig Ahmed creates with his uniquely woven carpets.

    The work of Faig Ahmed

    Using traditional Azerbaijan textiles, the artist has translated his fascination with textiles and patterns into reality-bending works of art that delight us with their perceived glitchy-ness, or that appear to be “melting”.

    “Patterns and ornaments can be found in all cultures, sometimes similar, sometimes very different. I consider them words and phrases that can be read and translated to a language we understand,” says Faig Ahmed, who began experimenting with carpet art when he was just 7 years old.
