Mickalene Thomas Showcases Luxury Rug with Rossana Orlandi
On display at Italy's Rossana Orlandi
Art Bazar 18 Sep 2020

Don’t you just love it when your favourite artists venture into something you never quite imagined? Art girl fave Mickalene Thomas has just launched a collaboration with Henzel Studio – a Swedish luxury rug company – to debut a hand-knotted rug that is super dreamy. 

On show at Rossana Orlandi in Porto Cervo Italy, the rug titled Raquel Come To Me is adapted from a photo collage created especially for the project. Taking references from art history, popular culture and politics, the rug uses various techniques to make a gorgeous work of art, taking six months to make. We’re just wondering how we can get our hands on one…

Mickalene’s rug is on display throughout September
