maximo laura is an amazing weaver who combines traditional peruvian methods and symbols with a more modern color scheme and asthetic.
i have to admit that some of his work is not exactly my style. yet, i totally love his use of color. the color combinations are breathtakingly beautiful.
and i loved watching a studio full of men weaving. why don't more american men weave?
and maximo's smile. it's infectious.
my friend mandy is going to be working with maximo starting in the spring and i am hoping to return to lima and visit them both.
