Artist Creates One-of-a-Kind Rugs That Look Like Lush Green Landscapes
At her family’s carpet factory in Buenos Aires, visual artist Alexandra Kehayoglou noticed there were piles of discarded thread lying around. Inspired by the beautiful natural landscapes of her native Argentina, Kehayoglou used the discarded pieces to create unique wool rugs that resemble grasslands, meadows, moss and forests.
On Facebook, Alexandra adds:
The textile is weaved (handtuft system) with a pistol that the artist manipulates in racks of vertical format to create point by point the weft that will breed the final piece.
Below you will find a select gallery of her incredible one-of-a-kind wool rugs. For more, check out her work at the links below.
