I would love it if Spanish street artist Nuria Mora would visit my little corner of London and brighten it up with one of her brilliant wall murals.

The wonderful Spanish rug company nanimarquina sent us a sneak peak and some process photos of its upcoming introduction to debut in Milan this month. Chillida is based on the artwork of Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002). nanimarquina has created a collection based on a chronological selection of his work, from Figura Humana 1948, through Dibujo Tinta 1957, to Collage 1966 that reflects the process prior to his most famous sculpture, the Peine del Viento in San Sebastián. It also includes two pictures of his famous hands from the 90s, and Gravitación, 1993 and 1994, where he creates a new form of relief, sculpture made of paper. All of this work has been accurately translated into the rugs. All are handmade using various techniques and different materials like wool, silk and mohair, to give texture and show the essence of his work.
