About The Artwork

Yesterday I saw two boys playing with a green ball in a neighboring yard. This action fascinated me. At first I began to photograph their movements on the sly, so as not to embarrass them, then I went home. But after a few minutes she stopped and decided to return... When, if not now? I told the guys that I am Aliya, an artist, and that they are very cool and that I can make a painting with them. I loved their reaction (how I love it!): interest, curiosity, readiness for adventure, an embarrassed smile... I inspired them to work as a team and we started filming. A lot of other boys immediately came running, everyone was wondering what was happening here. They even looked at my Instagram and someone proudly said: “I also love and know how to draw!” and I fervently believe him. Among those who joined was the boy Atay, such an enthusiast. He came up with different ideas and was excited about the process. With all my heart I wish him in the future to realize his creative potential in any business he decides to take on. And I wish every boy on the planet a happy childhood and a bright future! This picture is about carelessness, sincerity, joy, childhood... It reminds us that we should return ourselves to these sensations as often as possible. They are so clean. And all this is in every person, I know. There is always this silent presence waiting for us to call upon it...

As a Kyrgyz woman from Central Asia, in an environment of absurd limitations and despotic authority, I find myself fighting for the right of self-expression. I capture moments, feelings and situations. My works are different in terms of the mood and technique, but utterly similar in one thing: they all tell a story of how it is important to be honest with yourself, especially when you live in an environment which pays no attention to art and artists, and at best wants to enroll you for entertainment or propaganda.   I am deeply interested in studying psychological aspects, social issues, and how our universe is structured. I believe in certain things that science cannot explain yet. My artworks are a reflection on a variety of topics, from societal injustice and existential contemplations on life and death to simple admiration of the nature around us. As a highly sensitive person, I explore different aspects of the world through the observation of feelings. For me art is spontaneity and endless adventure.
