TAFTIQUE by Jules Vissers brings sustainable textile art to Milano Design Week 2023
During the 61st edition of Milan Design Week, Taftique presents her tapestries in the gallery of Isola Design District, in Via Pastrengo 14.
The Dutch artist, who has been living in Italy for almost 25 years, has her studio and gallery in the historical centre of Florence. The city of the Lily has in fact inspired many of her most successful works, such as the large tapestry ‘The Three Graces’, inspired by the famous Spring of Botticelli, that was awarded the Lorenzo il Magnifico Award during the Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art and Design in 2021. 
With her art she gives a contemporary interpretation of an ancient textile tradition inspired  by harmonious geometric and fluid forms. Another distinctive trait that makes her work unique and unrepeatable is her agile and dynamic use of the yarns, as if these truly were her painting colours. 
Her tapestries, delicately hand-tufted and embroidered, create a very soft and dense tactile and chromatic experience in which the embroidery recalls precious art textiles. 
During Milan Design Week 2023, the artist exhibits two large abstract tapestries that are based on her WAVE designs inspired by the forms of waves and swirls in the sea. Both tapestries also have a smaller version on display that accompanies another series of smaller framed tapestries called CIAO!, inspired by colourful cubist forms. 
Apart from numerous collaborations with Italian and international architects for the interior decoration of private and public spaces, her exclusive creations appear regularly in art and lifestyle magazines, such as Harper's Bazaar and Art Market Magazine.
