This masterpiece, created by the multicultural artist Olivia Babel, is a testament to her passion for depicting territories in a unique and vibrant manner. As part of Olivia Babel's favorite theme, ITALIA joins a distinguished collection of territory representations including France, Belgium, Senegal, and more.

Signed by the artist, this rare and unique piece measures 80 x 135 cm (31.5 x 53 inches) and required over 100 hours of meticulous work to complete. Effortlessly install ITALIA on your wall with nails, with instructions and installation materials included with the artwork.

Driven by an unwavering passion for the art of hand-weaving, my journey has led me to an enchanting exploration of cartography and the nuanced concept of territory. Through my meticulous portrayals of diverse landscapes, I aim to ignite contemplation on our profound relationship with the environment. My rich tapestry of experiences, woven from diverse ethnicities spanning Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America, serves as a testament to our global interconnectedness. Each masterpiece I craft is meticulously handwoven on looms within my atelier nestled in Lyon, France, employing traditional French savoir-faire and premium materials. My oeuvre, a manifestation of my cosmopolitan sensibilities, graces international art galleries, leaving an indelible mark on viewers worldwide. Noteworthy exhibitions include my debut at the prestigious International Biennial Contextile in Guimarães, Portugal, and the Biennial Objet Textile in Roubaix, France, both in 2018. Subsequently, I showcased my artistry at various esteemed venues, such as the gallery Atelier 28 in Lyon, France, in 2019, and my captivating solo exhibition in Abu Dhabi, UAE, in 2022, alongside appearances at the international spring art pop-up in Malmö, Sweden, and a group exhibition at Habtoor Palace in Dubai, UAE. Building upon this momentum, 2023 saw the unveiling of another solo exhibition in Dubai, coupled with group exhibitions across South Korea, Turkey, and London, underscoring my global resonance. Additionally, I engage in bespoke commissions tailored to specific creative endeavors, further enriching my artistic repertoire.
