Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a futuristic setting which focuses on a combination of lowlife and high tech featuring advanced technological and scientific achievements, such as artificial intelligence and cybernetics, juxtaposed with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.
It is rooted in the New Wave science fiction movement of the 1960-1970s. Many neo-futurism artworks and cityscapes have been influenced by cyberpunk.
Emin Qahramanov Art Gallery was founded by Azerbaijani avant-garde artist Emin Qahramanov, who represents Azerbaijan's contemporary art.
The gallery was created for collectors and is also a platform for developing the potential of young and talented painters. The gallery seeks to popularize Azerbaijani art along with the development and promotion of the domestic art market.
Emin Qahramanov Art Gallery provides a wide range of services. One can not only purchase a work of art in his or her personal collection, but also order a picture or an interior painting.
