Tapestry

Quick Overview

From the 1960’s to the 1980’s, Federico Aguilar Alcuaz made frequent trips to the Czech Republic (then Czechosloviakia), devoting most of his time to work in a textile factory. Intrigued by the modern tapestries he was constantly being exposed to, he momentarily stepped away from the traditional paintings, sculptures, and ceramics that he was accustomed to producing, delving into the art of “painting with fibers.”


Influenced by his time in Europe, his abstract works are reminiscent of modern masters like Pablo Picasso, their playful shapes and compositions rendered in a bold mix of colors. Exeedingly prolific and multifaceted, Alcuaz effortlessly established himself wherever he travelled, attracting an impressive following in both the local and international art scene.
