Darryn George 'Kaniwha' Rug for Dilana
A bespoke, artisan rug from the Dilana Workshop.
This collaboration with Darryn George (Ngapuhi) brings together traditions of Maori art forms with Western abstraction, in a thoroughly engaging and innovative way. George completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) at Canterbury in 1993 and a Master of Fine Art (Painting) at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1998. Since 1999, George has been Head of Department, Art at Christ's College in Christchurch. George has exhibited his work initially in Melbourne and extensively throughout New Zealand.
Dilana has been hand crafting New Zealand's most luxurious rugs for over 35 years. Since opening their Christchurch based Workshop in 1980, the company has successfully collaborated with many leading contemporary artists. The Dilana legacy can be seen in some of the most distinguished homes, commercial buildings, art galleries and museums throughout the world.
This rug has been hand tufted from the finest New Zealand wool at the Dilana workshop in Christchurch.
