About artist
Alighiero Boetti

In the early 1970s, Alighiero Boetti joined the Arte Povera, an art movement that focused on experimenting with ordinary and everyday materials. At the same time, Boetti developed a special interest in oriental culture and travelled regularly to Afghanistan, where he had his famous embroidery pictures made. The production of these embroideries continued until his death in 1994.
