Limited Edition Rug: Andy Warhol & Calle Henzel Oxidation Painting, 1978 Oxidation Painting II, 2021



A collaboration between Henzel Studio and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, these limited edition rugs are made of silk and wool, utilizing hand-made techniques that date back centuries. Warhol’s Oxidation paintings are abstract explorations of differently shaped stains, intricate color-shifts, and shimmering surfaces. Far removed from his previous works based on photography and silk-screening, these works explore a painterly abstraction reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism. The process in which the paintings were made, by urinating on the canvas and metallic oxidation, suggests a kind of alchemy in which bodily fluids are transformed into images of devastating beauty.

Calle Henzel


Calle Henzel has over the past twenty years translated his artistic practice as painter and collage artist into the medium of textiles, positioning Henzel Studio as one of the most progressive luxury rug brands in the world. While remaining at the forefront of design, Henzel Studio’s foundation and raison d’être lies in the artisanal production of local communities in Nepal and India that dates back thousands of years.

To expand on this practice, HENZEL STUDIO: COLLABORATIONS / HERITAGE was conceived as a continuous initiative curated by Joakim Andreasson, inviting some of the most prominent contemporary artists of our time to freely and seamlessly translate their work through an alternate media and the extraordinary practices that are involved in the making of Henzel Studio's rugs.

Through this program, Calle Henzel has collaborated with some of the most prominent names in contemporary art, including Nan Goldin, Richard Prince, Juergen Teller, Marilyn Minter, Jack Pierson, Helmut Lang, Anselm Reyle, Douglas Gordon, Richard Phillips, and the estates of Andy Warhol and Tom of Finland.
