Artist Focus

Zufar Bikbov

A focus on the work of Zufar Bikbov

Landscape artist Zufar Bikbov loves to paint nature because, for him, it is an inexhaustible souce of inspiration. “In nature, I find harmony and beauty, power and lyricism. Often I choose sceneries with signs of human presence: farmlands, roads, boats. I show in my paintings that human is a part of this world,” he says. “My message is that we are responsible for the collaboration with nature, responsible for maintaining harmony in our interaction with it.”Logging-in, oil on linen panel, 12 x 24"

Bikbov’s roots are in Russian art, “where realism and impressionism have twisted together and the best of these two styles were taken into it,” he explains. Along with the beauty of the world in his paintings, Bikbov hopes people see connections to other generations throughout time. His interest in historical buildings and activities of the past and present, such as fishing and farming, also is reflected in his artwork. He adds, “My goal is to create art that makes people enjoy what they see on my canvases, experience emotions, and trigger thoughts and contemplations.”Quiet Night on the Shore, oil on line, 24 x 30"

The artist runs the Russera project, an art gallery and education resource from Russian artists. “Its main idea is to present artworks ranging from plein air studies to masterworks to audiences outside Russia,” says Bikbov. “Video content along with art classes will open up the veil of mystery around the phenomenon of Russian fine art.” His artwork will be shown at the Russera Gallery in Watertown, Connecticut, November 28 through December 30 in the show Land and Sea. —
