Artist Focus

Artist Focus: Zufar Bikbov

Zufar Bikbov has found endless inspiration in nature since childhood. His passion for plein air painting has led him to avidly explore and paint the American landscape for over a decade, resulting in paintings that are fresh and full of life. “I want my feelings to be genuine to the moment of my experience,” Bikbov says. “I see it, I feel that day and the light.” Bikbov has received recognition for his work in plein air competitions nationwide, including the Best use of Light award at the Gloucester Plein Air Festival in 2022. He has a great respect for science, like optics and the chemistry of oil painting, and he finds in art his emotional exercise and relaxation, keeping his mind and soul balanced in this world.

His medical background helps him see how art changes and heals the souls of his collectors, students and himself. Plein air painting has taken him across the United States, from coastal Maine and Connecticut, to the Rocky Mountains and beaches of Southern California. 

Bikbov will be featured in a group show titled Summer in New England at Susan Powell Fine Art in Madison, Connecticut, from July 1 through August 17, and another called Artists on the Risefrom August 23 through September 28.

“Zufar Bikbov’s paintings reveal his love of what he’s painting,” says gallery owner Susan Powell. “Movement in his brushwork brings energy to the colors and light. Clients love his stories and his rendering of light and color.” —
