This exhibit introduces Tucson to the amazing and colorful tapestries of Peruvian artist Maximo Laura. Artful Living Gallery & Studio will now represent Maximo here in Tucson.

Maximo Laura is the pre-eminent tapestry artist in the world. His work is collected all over the globe and is in many museum collections. He has been called a National Treasure by Peru where he lives and produces his vibrant and lyrical hand loomed works of art.

Recently I had the opportunity to visit Maximo in Peru and watch the production of these beautiful wall hangings. What attracted me to his work is his use of color and symbolism in creating his work. I felt it was very much in line with the intensity and color palette I choose to work with. Its a great complement.

The result is a collaboration between artists in which I have customized some of his work for the gallery here in Tucson. The tapestries on display in this exhibit and for sale are unique to us and reflect the colors and imagery of the southwest.

I¬†look forward to introducing you to Maximo’s beautifully crafted and intensely vibrant work.
