A Radical Collaboration
After a grueling five year epic of experimentation and innovation, Behruz Studio present their collaboration with renowned artists Robert Doble and Simon Strong.
Doble & Strong have been collaborating since 2010 on avant-garde masterpieces that combine photography and paint on metal to portray the female body in constant states of metamorphosis. Erotic and challenging, the works have inspired a loyal following among collectors, critics and curators.
In their latest foray, Doble & Strong have teamed up with textile aficionado Behruz Aligorgi to create a bravura suite of 12 silk and wool rugs that will transform both home and office into a contemporary art museum.
Working from drawings and paintings prepared by the artists, Aligorgi travelled to Nepal to work with traditional Tibetan rug weavers to translate these surreal images into woven reality. The results are a far cry from the Buddhist and Chinese imagery that the weavers usually adhere to and posed immense technical and creative challenges for all involved.
