Hand-knotted in a unique blend of wool, natural silk, and a variety of exotic yarns, this custom rug sample represents the collaborative work of celebrated modern artist Gianni Lee with Rug & Kilim’s custom collection—further embodying one of the New York rug team’s most ambitious approaches to luxury rug making in the industry.
About the Artist: Referred to by Vice as the modern-day Basquiat, Gianni Lee has been widely recognized for his explorative, multidisciplinary work and exhibits alike in New York City and Los Angeles alike. Enjoying a body of work both stylistically distinct and ripe with the conversation, some of Lee’s most reputed works in both gallery and street art have married the subtle and the bold in meticulous, striking fashion, investigating themes of heritage, conflict, government, anxiety, and the concept of the lost soul often tied to his most discernible skeletal pictorials. Rug & Kilim is deeply honored to collaborate with Lee on this and other upcoming projects, as well as to pay homage to Lee’s profound and prolific artists in the new light of our industry experience.
Custom Capable: This design can be made as a custom rug in full size, color, and material blend capabilities available within 4 months of inquiry. Hand-knotted in one of our most reputed long-standing partner looms in India.
