Color­ful paint­ings by Azer­bai­jani artist Naila Gandilova were show­cased in Be­larus, sb.byre­ports.

Through her works, the artist ex­presses her ded­i­ca­tion to Azer­bai­jan, which this year cel­e­brates the 100th an­niver­sary of in­de­pen­dence. This year also marks the 25th an­niver­sary of the diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween Azer­bai­jan and Be­larus.

"This year there have al­ready been many im­por­tant events ded­i­cated to the an­niver­sary of the found­ing of our coun­try," said Am­bas­sador Ex­tra­or­di­nary and Plenipo­ten­tiary of Azer­bai­jan to Be­larus Latif Gandilov.

"To be in­de­pen­dent is the right given to ev­ery na­tion, but not ev­ery­one can use it. We could do it. This is a great merit of our Pres­i­dent Il­ham Aliyev, who con­fi­dently leads us along this path. I am pleased to be in in­de­pen­dent Be­larus. We are close, friendly na­tions. Now we are build­ing a mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial re­la­tion­ship for the fu­ture. This ap­plies not only to pol­i­tics and the econ­omy, but also to the hu­man­i­tar­ian in­dus­try. We con­clude this im­por­tant year with a cul­tural project - an ex­hi­bi­tion of Naila Gandilova," he said.

Pre­sent­ing her works, Naila with a spe­cial feel­ing said that it was a great honor for her that th­ese paint­ings were ex­hib­ited at the Palace of In­de­pen­dence dur­ing the re­cent visit of the Pres­i­dent Il­ham Aliyev.

Naila has never learned to draw. An econ­o­mist by ed­u­ca­tion, she taught for many years at the Azer­bai­jan State Univer­sity of Eco­nomics. But all th­ese years, she was keenly in­ter­ested in art, vis­ited many ex­hi­bi­tions.

The artist be­lieves that each per­son has a nat­u­ral abil­ity. How­ever, find­ing our nat­u­ral tal­ents can be quite dif­fi­cult . Naila Gandilova dis­cov­ered her tal­ent af­ter mov­ing to China.

"Ar­riv­ing in Be­larus a year and a half ago, I was sur­prised by its white and blue col­ors and again took up the brush," she added.

A new edi­tion of the book The Light by Naila Gandilova was also pre­sented at the mu­seum. Her po­ems are full of love for the moth­er­land. They are filled with pu­rity and goodness, which also flow from her paint­ings.
