Sarah Malekzadeh x Rick Fleming KFC Carpet Collaboration
Tufted carpet by Sarah Malekzadeh | 19" x 25"
Inspired by Rick Fleming's hand-painted wood cutout of a bucket of KFC fried chicken, Malekzadeh created this tufted carpet. The collaboration was born from Malekzadeh and Fleming's shared love of pop culture objects from their childhoods. Fast food iconography makes appearances in both of their bodies of work, making this a natural collaboration.
