Contemporary Art Rug in Wool and Silk "Tropical Mercury" Limited Edition

$13,500per item

About

This contemporary rug by Sion Vega is made in premium New Zealand wool and silk. The rug is a limited edition, woven by Odabashian's network of family-owned weavers near Mirzapur, India with the finest New Zealand wool. The design of this rug was created by contemporary artist Simon Vega for the 2017 Zona Maco Contemporary Art Fair in Mexico City. Established in 1921, Odabashian is a creative conduit for artists, designers, architects and creatives to learn, explore and create using traditional hand-made rug making techniques for applications across all design industries. Our rugs are hand-knotted with premium New Zeland wool and silk, with intricate carving details along the blue print drawing. More about Simon Vega Simón Vega creates drawings, ephemeral sculptures and installations inspired in the informal, self made architecture and vendor carts found in the streets and marginal zones of El Salvador and Central America. These works, assembled with wood, cardboard, plastic and found materials often parody famous Modernist and mythological buildings and cities, surveillance systems as well as high-tech robots and satellites developed by NASA and the Soviet Space Program during the Cold War, creating an ironic and humorous fusion between first and third world, while commenting on the effects of that conflict in today’s Central America. Born in San Salvador, El Salvador in 1972, Simon Vega graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Veracruz in Mexico in 2000 and received a Master´s degree in Contemporary Arts from the Complutense University in Madrid in 2006. He has exhibited his work extensively in Europe, the United States and Latin America, including the 55th Venice Biennial in Italy, the IX Havana Biennial, in Cuba, the Museo del Barrio's "The S-Files" show in New York in 2011and at the Bronx River Art Center in 2008, both in New York City, as well as at the Hilger BROT Kunsthalle in Vienna, Austria (2010 & 2012). He currently lives in La Libertad, El Salvador.
