    Faig Ahmed Deconstructs Traditional Azerbajani Rugs to Form Unconventional Sculptures.

    28th May

    Be careful – don’t trip over Faig Ahmed’s three-dimensional rugs as they unravel before your very eyes! This Azerbaijani artist is no stranger to fibre arts – most of his work revolves around the construction and deconstruction of intricately patterned rugs and carpets.



    Real-Life Tetris Sculptures by Michael Johansson.

    22nd May

    Michael Johansson is a Swedish installation artist who takes OCD tendencies to the next level with his real-life Tetris sculptures. His passion for ordinary and useless things organised into exceptionally good-looking piles makes most neat-freaks look like the biggest slobs. Johansson is obsessed with irregularities and coincidences between to disparate objects which may only be linked by a common colour or a shape. On a more practical level, I bet this guy is excellent at stacking dishwashers, packing car boots and fridges. Yes!

    Cool, clever, and full of visual impact, these mixed media collages from Argentinian graphic designer Larissa Haily Aguado are both dynamic and hilarious. Our hat goes off to Liarissa for her ability to blend disparate images for spectacularly simple results.

    Design Free Thursday // Doublefaced by Sebastian Bieniek.

    10th April

    ‘Doublefaced’ is an ongoing series of experimental portraits by Berlin-based artist Sebastian Bieniek where a second face is painted with make-up on the side of the model’s face. While the idea seems ridiculously simple, the actual result is a super bizarre, off-kilter series of photos that will give you the heebie jeebies.
