T-shirt with print “Figura maschile (pastore sardo)”, 1966

Male figure (Sardinian shepherd), 1966
warp and weft in wool, vertical loom weaving

Starting from 1960 Nivola designs sketches for tapestries, to be made in Sardinia, in Sarule, a town with a great tradition in the field of weaving. After the war, Europe and the United States witnessed a revival of the art of tapestry, with the help of a good number of artists.

Nivola knows Le Corbusier’s theory of the tapestry as a “muralnomad” “portable” wall painting suitable for the often nomadic life of modern man. The three-dimensional sculpture is brought back onto the two-dimensional plane thanks to the sharp contrast of whites and blacks, in a way not unlike graffiti.
