“ There should be magic in art which makes the viewer stop ”

Our guest is known as a sculptor , graphic artist and the author of carpets which speak a special language , where the notes of Azerbaijani traditions and innovative contemporary art sound in full accord .
►Where do you get inspiration for work and creativity ?
- There is no ready-made advice and rules . This does not happen by my will , it is something from the inside that the Lord God gives , from beauty and energy of the world around . And I just work , express it , even do not know what the result will be .
►What knowledge is needed to be an artist of contemporary art ?
- For me , there is no contemporary and past art . There is Art that lives , no matter what is . It is important to be a thoughtful feeling person , who cannot help but express his emotions . Knowledge has its own meaning : how to hold a brush , draw a sketch , and write a play ... This toolkit should be mastered . But not a single teaching , not a single book will give instructions on what to do , when and how . Knowledge of life is also important .
►What is the most productive time of day for you ?
- I ’ m a lark . I wake up at four or five , and go to bed at nine or ten . But sometimes I can do something at night .
