Henzel Studio Collaborations, is an exclusive collection of limited edition art rugs realized in close collaboration with some of the world’s most notable contemporary artists. All pieces are made by hand, using centuries’ old weaving techniques that make each rug one of a kind.
For Henzel Studio, Sasnal adapted a pencil drawing of outlines onto graph paper into the media at hand. Variable pile heights of the graphite lines create a carved effect, whereas enhanced composition of silk in the graphed areas create contrast and nuance.
Wilhelm Sasnal is a prolific contemporary artist who for the past fifteen years has produced a vast body of work of painted and filmic images. During his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Sasnal helped form an artist’s collective, whose members produced paintings of their present, often banal surroundings, using a deskilled aesthetic that opposed the style valued by their teachers.
