Painting, for Shukhrat Abdumalikov, born in 1970 in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, is not just a hobby. It is a way of life constantly searching for theme, colour, and form. The world created by the artist is lyrical and fragile, poetic and uneasily vulnerable. The artist's attitude constantly searches for depth and harmony while remaining within the standard framework of characters and subjects. The characters in his paintings are silent - they seem to sit for the artist. It conveys the impression of a dialogue effect between the image and the viewer. The static nature of the image allows the viewer to immerse into its inner world. At that exact moment, you get the feeling the picture is studying the viewer looking at it.
