Textile Artist Maximo Laura is one of South America’s most accomplished weavers. He is a fifth-generation master weaver who learned the traditional style of ancient weaving, known as Cumbimayocs, from his parents and grandparents – all master weavers from Ayacucho, Peru. While he is ultimately respectful of the iconography and colors of the ancient Huari culture (which predates the Inca culture), it is his juxtaposition of those traditions with his own design elements and narrative that have earned him many international awards, distinctions, and exhibits. Laura is a scholar of textile art and has traveled the world exploring and teaching in his field.
