Faig Ahmed is an internationally recognized artist from Baku, Azerbaijan, known for his conceptual works utilizing traditional craft reimagined as contemporary sculptural artworks. He explores new visual forms that both examine and challenge tradition through the use of iconic cultural objects. Ahmed's works engages viewers through its juxtaposition of tradition with hyper-contemporaneity, digitally distorting images through pixelation and three-dimensional shapes.
