About the author
"PAINTING IS A HINT OF THE CONCRETE. WHERE TALKING BEGIN, ART ENDS."
Aidar's work balances between abstraction and specifics. The outlines of cities are blurred, hiding behind patches of colour, often betrayed only by the spires of towers or the arches of gates pointing skywards. The author deliberately creates such a mysterious image; in his opinion, art that blindly imitates reality is banal. The artist not only chooses subtle colour combinations for each canvas, but also frames them tastefully, so that you can hang them on the wall immediately.
