Ziyahanov Khurshid was born in 1958 in Tashkent. In 1987 he graduated from the Tashkent Theater and Art Institute, department of book graphics. Since 1987 he works in editorial offices, publishing houses as an artist graphic. He is a regular participant of republican, regional and international exhibitions.
The originality of Khurshid Ziyakhanov's talent began to appear in the 1990s, when the artist devoted himself entirely to painting. He quickly developed, finding his purely individual line in the spectrum of the modern. The works of this period, represented at the exhibition, reflect the formation of the handwriting of the artist, which took place on the way of a free dialogue of avant-garde trends of the 20th century with rich traditions of folk art.
Attracting so different artistic ideas, Khurshid Ziyahanov found an interesting interpretation of the plasticity of surrealism, cubism for the expression of poetic metaphors of the East, historical and mythological subjects. In the canvases of recent years, dedicated to musicians, folkloric images, wars, dervishes through bright, bold colors, exquisite harmony of shapes and avant-garde deformation of plastics, centuries-old traditions of the East are being revived, which this modern master is developing.
