Akhmedov's new series of artworks “ Liaisons” are complex, figurative compositions with symbolic, yet almost fairy-tale like, content that stir both emotions and intrigue. Timur’s work most often displays a fascinating mix of his own dreams – he depicts the world and people in a surreal, dream-like way, often representing himself and others as majestic characters within a story.
The artist is known for his color and its development plays the principal role in his pictures.He creates rich in hues color compositions where the combination of Asian turquoise, warm ochre and vibrant reds creates a strange sense of silence, almost as if one were watching a silent movie.
The surreal is never far from the heart of Akhmedov’s narrative. Usually there are one or two figures in a composition, "suspended" in the abstract reality – where there is no action, the action is only suggested by an expressive posture or gesture. The artist makes his heroes to live in a set he has invented and brought in accord with the invented nature of the character. His paintings have also a sensual overtone and display a combination of abstractions and objects, nervous pulse and tranquility, romanticism and grotesque.
Timur Akhmedov has achieved national and international recognition. His artworks are highly sought after and grace private collections of serious art collectors and investors globally His famous collectors include musician Seal, Dr. M.W.J. Smurfit and His Serene Highness Prince Albert of Monaco.
