Atigula Aziz, born in 1979 in an Uzbek family in Afghanistan, has lived in Munich since 1993, where he completed his painting studies with Prof. Axel Kasseböhmer at the Academy of Fine Arts and graduated as a master student. The core of his painting is the representational representation. Against the background of his own biography, he blurs the real and the surreal, confronts the observed or the remembered with the imagined. In his work he deals thematically with the experience of isolation and isolation as well as the alienation of man from his natural environment.

The painting process as well as the confrontation with form and color, which he brings back each time anew, is his actual motivation.

Artist Statement:

I believe that I can not neglect the eyesight and quality of viewing habits, but I believe that the viewing habits are quite different. For my part, my interest in intersecting the same painting, the occupation with form and color. The painting process is my own driving force, is in the durchkomponierten representational representation of my current pictures or free, gestsicheren work of earlier years.

Thematic I also disassociate from the experience of isolation and isolation but also with the alienation of man from his natural environment. The feeling of isolation, whether it is the stranger, the outsider, the misunderstood or the lonely, is a central experience of human existence. In the light of my own biography and the operation of remembering, the real and the surreal disappear, the observed is confronted with the imaginary. I also feel that my environment is sensitive to me being with them, and I believe that I am looking after them with another person.
