Zohrab Salamzadeh's jinns to be presented in Icherisheher
Baku's Art Tower Gallery in Icherisheher will host an exhibition of young talented Azerbaijani artist Zohrab Salamzadeh on November 19-23.
Salamzadeh's paintings are inspired by history and religion. "There are several themes that I display in my paintings most often. These are Icherisheher, without which I can’t imagine my existence; jinns who live parallel with us and whom people do not take seriously or treat disrespectfully, although they are the same equal inhabitants of our land; and dervishes who combine these all together," the artist said.
"Their philosophy, the lifestyle and love that they have been spreading for many centuries, had a significant impact on our culture and worldview. This is an exhibition in which I want to show you the attitude of dervishes to harmony itself, peace and love that they preached," Salamzadeh said.
Zohrab Salamzadeh was born in Baku on November 19, 1992 in the family of an engineer. He is a graduate of the Azerbaijan State Art College (2013) and the Azerbaijan State Academy of Arts (2017). The artist has repeatedly participated in group exhibitions.
The exhibition is co-organized by Icherisheher State Historical and Architectural Reserve and Arts Council Azerbaijan (NGO).
