Uzbekistan Today (English) - - CULTURE AND ARTS -

“Sunny Uzbek­istan is my dear homeland, and I do not get tired of de­pict­ing its beauty on my can­vases,” are the words of a cit­i­zen of Uzbek­istan of Korean na­tion­al­ity who dis­played his paint­ings at the ex­hi­bi­tion timed to the 80th an­niver­sary of the re­sid­ing of Kore­ans in Uzbek­istan.

The Academy of Arts of Uzbek­istan, the Em­bassy of the Repub­lic of Korea in Uzbek­istan to­gether with the As­so­ci­a­tion of Korean Cul­tural Cen­ters of Uzbek­istan or­ga­nized an ex­hi­bi­tion in Tashkent timed to the 25 years of the es­tab­lish­ment of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan and the Repub­lic of Korea, as well as the 80th an­niver­sary of the res­i­dence of our com­pa­tri­ots of Korean na­tion­al­ity in Uzbek­istan. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the diplo­matic corps, art his­to­ri­ans, artists and me­dia work­ers took part in the open­ing cer­e­mony.

The ex­hi­bi­tion dis­plays about 150 paint­ings in the genre of fine arts and graph­ics.

Chair­man of the Academy of Arts of Uzbek­istan Ak­mal Nurid­di­nov, Speaker of the Na­tional Assem­bly of the Repub­lic of Korea, Chung Sye-kyun, Hon­ored Cul­tural Worker of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan Iskra Shin and oth­ers par­tic­u­larly noted that friendly re­la­tions be­tween the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan and the Repub­lic of Korea serve to strengthen mu­tual trust and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial re­la­tions.

The Academy of Arts of Uzbek­istan jointly with the Em­bassy of the Repub­lic of Korea in Uzbek­istan or­ga­nizes var­i­ous ex­hi­bi­tions and projects.

This ex­hi­bi­tion, or­ga­nized as part of the Korean Fes­ti­val 2017, is ded­i­cated to the cre­ativ­ity of our com­pa­tri­ots of Korean na­tion­al­ity - fa­mous artists Niko­lay Shin, Niko­lay Pak, Ana­toliy Li­gay, Alek­sandr Lee, Iskra Shin, Lana Lim, Elena Lee, Vladimir Kim, Tatyana Lee, Svet­lana Shin, and Svet­lana Tsoy.

Tatyana Lee, who de­picts the life and na­ture of our coun­try in her paint­ings, is a par­tic­i­pant and win­ner of var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions.

“Sunny Uzbek­istan is for me a dear Mother­land,” she says. “I do not get tired of de­pict­ing on its beauty my can­vases. Mu­tual close­ness and sim­i­lar­ity of the two peo­ples call upon us to work to­gether, to en­gage in cre­ativ­ity. In the cre­ativ­ity of my fa­ther Alek­sandr Lee, my mother Galina Lee, my sis­ter Maria LeeSo­phie and my cre­ativ­ity, the re­flec­tion of the way of life of Uzbek and Korean peo­ples, their com­mon fea­tures and cus­toms pre­vails. This is for us not only pride, but also a high honor.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion in the Tashkent House of Pho­tog­ra­phy was ded­i­cated to the same two sig­nif­i­cant dates, which was or­ga­nized by the Gyeonggi Fine Arts As­so­ci­a­tion of the Repub­lic of Korea.

Open­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion, the deputy chair­man of the Academy of Arts of Uzbek­istan, the chair­man of the Gyeonggi Fine Arts As­so­ci­a­tion and oth­ers noted that the diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween the two states play an im­por­tant role in strength­en­ing the friend­ship of Uzbek and Korean peo­ples and co­op­er­a­tion in the spheres of econ­omy, cul­ture and art.

In our coun­try, cit­i­zens of Korean na­tion­al­ity live in peace and har­mony with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of other na­tion­al­i­ties. Af­ter gain­ing in­de­pen­dence, Uzbek­istan along with other coun­tries es­tab­lished diplo­matic re­la­tions with the Repub­lic of Korea. Mul­ti­fac­eted co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries is be­ing strength­ened from year to year in var­i­ous fields, in­clud­ing in the field of fine arts.

The can­vases cre­ated by the mem­bers of the Gyeonggi Fine Arts As­so­ci­a­tion ‘The Blos­som­ing Plum Tree’, ‘The Amaz­ing Wo­man’, ‘The Flow­ers of Love’, ‘The Taste of the Grapes’, ‘Har­mony of the World’, ‘The Feel­ings of the Red For­est’, ‘The Beauty of Au­tumn’ re­flect the iden­tity of the cul­ture of the peo­ple of South Korea, its beau­ti­ful na­ture.
