Sabidjan Babadjanov, a distinguished artist of the Kyrgyz Republic, and Kaiyrgul Kazybekova, known for her glasswork, will discuss their work and their influences, as well as the state of art in Central Asia.AUCA Professor Valeri Hardin will host the event, and pieces of each artist’s work will be on display and available for purchase. Artists’ Background: Kaiyrgul Kazybekova is a talented Kyrgyz artist and designer. She began and continues her career in oil painting and graphics, but has lately focused on exterior and interior design, decoration and glass painting. She participated in decorating the archeological center Koshoi-Korgon in At-Bashi, the Supara ethnic center (where she painted a chandelier 3.5 meters in diameter), the Dordoi mosque, and other facilities. Says Kaiyrgul, “In my work with glass (chandeliers, ceiling and wall lamps, stained windows, and glassware) I like to open and experiment with new material and new methods. Glass is a challenge to work with, but the product brings joy to people and creates a special atmosphere.” Sabidjan Babadjanov is a well-known Kyrgyz artist remarkable for his life experience and unique art. Born in Xingjiang, China, his family was forced to flee their hometown of Dardamtu for Kyrgyzstan. Here he developed as an artist, becoming a distinguished artist of the country, and his paintings have been exhibited both in Kyrgyzstan and abroad. Being a versatile artist who uses different techniques and genres, Sabdijan manages to convey the spirit of Central Asia and the Silk Route. Recently he began a series of portraits of famous thinkers and turned to the theme of celestial signs and nostalgia. Art critic G. Toktosunova writes about Babadjanov, “He is a special kind of artist who has his own system of relations with the world based on the philosophy and culture of western Asia. The works produced in his ‘laboratory’ are the fruit of his sincere feelings and reflection on human destinies, an attempt to determine his place in society and nature; they are formulas of harmony and search of the truth. ” ************************************************** VACANCIES / ВАКАНСИИ: **************************************************1.
