Munar Rug

Touch it, walk on it and feel it with your bare feet. Anton Munar’s vivid artistic manner attains a tactile dimension in his rug for the Normann x Brask Art Collection. He has transformed the innate qualities of pencil drawing and watercolor into the design of an expressive weave, exploring new forms of expression for his poetic work.

”After meeting with Jens-Peter Brask and Normann Copenhagen, I spent some time toying with ideas. My first thought was to make a Venetian wooden chair or a butter knife. The rug was my third idea, and it stuck with me. Two days after our initial meeting, I made a drawing on a flight back from London. A drawing of a knight playing the flute. The melody was so beautiful that we cried and cried. Two Gothic windows for us who cried. The sun and the moon.” – Anton Munar

The swift nature of Munar’s brushstrokes transmutes in the meticulous weaving process, where the yarn is changed every so often in order to reproduce the sometimes miniscule color changes of the running watercolors and dispersed strokes. Slowly, the rug takes shape: shades of nude, purple, brown and green intermingle on an ivory backdrop and a landscape scene appears. A sun and a moon hover in the sky and the knight stands at the fore, enchanting us with his virtuosity.

Anton Munar

Anton Munar’s primary medium is painting, but the Danish artist also occasionally works with clay and video. The medieval period is a reoccurring theme in his work, where imposing Gothic cathedrals tower over knights on holy quests. His mythological universe and poetic narratives come to life through dramatic and color-intense compositions.

Munar was born in Copenhagen in 1997, where he also lives and works. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London and the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in Copenhagen.
