Max Daniël Terpstra (1997) is a Rotterdam based tapestry designer and maker. Working in both tufting and weaving. After graduating the Willem de Kooning Academy in Illustration with a project on weaving and the self creation of looms, the intrest grew towards tapestry and rugs.
By trying to find a balance between traditionally made rugs and their designs he tries to implement new forms and design inspired by those traditional artefacts and create a new and more contemporary piece. Where emphasis is aimed towards the medium and its shape, a contradiction can be found by the illustrated forms on the rugs, bold and sharp forms dominate and confront a soft and fluid fabric medium.
