artist profile: eric boysaw

San Francisco’s Creativity Explored is a nonprofit visual arts center where artists with developmental disabilities create, exhibit—and sell art as ongoing support of their activities.

Artist Eric Boysaw is a native of San Francisco and his language, American Sign Language, has influenced many of the artworks he has produced over the years. He primarily works with drawing media, using pastel, charcoal, and ink with great precision.

Originally rendered in those mediums, Eric’s robot is given a new life in a flatweave dhurrie. His signature is woven in the corner as a gentle reminder of the creative talent behind it while a percentage of the sale of each rug will go directly to Creativity Explored.

OMG, I just bought this rug. I am OBSESSED with robots and this rug is perfect for my living room. In the product reviews many have used them as wall art as opposed to using it as a rug. Can anyone tell me how they chose to hang it on their wall? I have never done it before.

Hi Kellee!
So glad to hear you love this rug by Creativity Explored artist Eric Boyshaw.
This rug is a dhurrie--thinner than our wool pile rugs--but the information in this previous blog posting should help. Good luck!
