KALEIDOSCOPE BY TIMUR ERNST AKHMEDOV
June 20 - October 19
Timur Ernst Akhmedov's (b. 1968, Tashkent, Uzbekistan) new series of artworks are complex compositions with symbolic, yet almost fairy-tale like content that stir emotions, mystery and intrigue. He often displays a fascinating mix of his own dreams – he depicts the world and people in asurreal, dream-like way, often representing himself and others as majestic characters within a story.
The Tashkent artist came into prominence in the 1990s, having received the Grand Prix at the regional biennial "Asia Art". Critics then started talking about the "trans avant garde" quality of his works, which some saw as the local version of postmodernism.
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.
