Transposing

Children's Paintings into CARPET

 

In March 2014,  an exhibition of Children's paintings was presented in Beirut by Mme Hanan Houhou Hamdan,their teacher  .

 

The plastic of these paintings lead Paul to constitute more than 24 combinations of a patchwork based oh each child's painting  and in 2014,  he decided to launch a Carpet based on this patchwork through a tight collaboration with Nivine Maktabi from Oumnia .

 

The detail and the complexity of the color was not obvious to realize the carpet . Nevertheless after more than 4 months, the first Carpet based on this patchwork was finished and presented to the children   .
