TOver the past years, Vu­gar Mu­radov has suc­cess­fully par­tic­i­pated at ma­jor in­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tions and art fairs.

For ex­am­ple, last year his paint­ings were sent to the pres­ti­gious art fair in the United States. Mu­radov be­came the only Azer­bai­jani artist whose paint­ings were dis­played at Art Basel Mi­ami Beach 2017, the most ex­ten­sive in­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion of con­tem­po­rary art in North Amer­ica, Yenicag re­ported.

Last year, Art Basel Mi­ami Beach at­tracted more than 77,000 art deal­ers, artists, col­lec­tors and art lovers. Art Basel is the only fair held at the Mi­ami Beach Con­ven­tion Cen­ter.

This time the works of the Azer­bai­jani artist are pre­sented at the pres­ti­gious fair of modern art in Mi­ami, which is an­nu­ally vis­ited by the most fa­mous art deal­ers, art agents, gallery own­ers, art lovers and con­nois­seurs.

Art lovers can en­joy the works of na­tional artist un­til De­cem­ber 5.

The tal­ented artist born in 1967 is one of the iconic fig­ures of modern paint­ing of Azer­bai­jan.

Mu­radov usu­ally says that he has ev­ery­thing that an artist could want: plen­ti­ful light suf­fus­ing the space through a glass wall and an open view across a bay in the Caspian to a cas­cade of oil der­ricks on the hori­zon. Stand­ing guard over the dis­trict for more than a cen­tury, they evoke ro­man­tic thoughts and feel­ings.

His can­vases "Mugham", "Adam and Eve", "Old Nod­ding Oil Der­rick" are made up of many dif­fer­ent faces con­tained in small squares and they gave rise to his cy­cle "Faces", which pro­fes­sion­als have hailed as a new word in artis­tic crafts­man­ship.

Mu­radov’s paint­ings are mainly bought by pri­vate col­lec­tors and the world’s most fa­mous mu­se­ums, in­clud­ing the Guggen­heim Mu­seum in New York and the same city’s Mu­seum of Modern Art, the Ar­gen­tinean com­pany Gue­vara Films, the Cen­tral and Eastern Euro­pean Art Foun­da­tion in Wash­ing­ton, the Sasakawa Peace Foun­da­tion (Ja­pan).

His paint­ing "Gar­net" was sold for $50,000 at Tokyo In­ter­na­tional Art Fair.

They em­bel­lish the of­fices of the Bal­ti­more Sun news­pa­per (U.S.), Tur­key’s Min­istry of De­fence, the Lam­bri In­ter­na­tional com­pany (Hol­land), the Peace Foun­da­tion, the French em­bassy in Azer­bai­jan and many pri­vate col­lec­tions around the world.

Azer­bai­jani artist Vu­gar Mu­radov is also a mem­ber of the UN­ESCO In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Art.
