Mimi Rodes will talk about the work and workshop of Maximo Laura whom she visited in Peru last year. Maximo is a contemporary Peruvian textile artist of international acclaim. He has been named a “Peruvian Treasure”. His tapestry designs incorporate ancient symbols, traditions and rituals of the culture he grew up in. His use of color, design and weaving techniques are amazing as you can see from the attached photo! “Maximo Laura ́s vision proposes the promotion of Peruvian contemporary textile art on international stage, which has been the underlying and fundamental purpose of his artistic mission for the last 30 years.” (Source: Maximo Laura’s website)
