ALMAGUL MENLIBAYEVA, ARTIST:
- I presented here different works of different periods. And one of them is a photograph. I also returned to the forms of my painting, I returned through the new media, graphic design, where I use the mainstream "computer language", I like to process it through my pictorial experience. I believe that Kazakhstan and all of us have great opportunities, we must participate in the best cultural events, our works should be in the world museums. We have a lot to show, we can share our experience.
In her compositions, Almagul uses a graphic design with elements of Art Nouveau and media art. In her works, the themes of nomadic and oriental culture can easily be traced. The author of the exhibition is sure that the fusion of legends and real life, landscape and man, architecture and fauna, through new technologies, allows us to present our country in completely new and original forms of art.
