Creativity of the young and talented Azerbaijani artist, Maryam Alakbarli, has gained wide popularity not only in the country but also in the European countries.

Maryam’s works will be featured in a new and very prestigious exhibition: “Art Shopping” festival.

The event will exhibit more than 20 works of Maryam in different genres in the Louvre Museum’s exhibition hall "Carousel” in Paris from June 12.

This event which is usually held two times per year aims to promote new talents and aesthetic trends in contemporary art world.

Born in 1991, Alakbarli developed a taste for painting and sculpting at a very early age and got actively involved in children's art to a point that her works went on exhibitions. Her works, including four of her albums, were displayed in Baku, Paris, Istanbul, Ankara, Rome and Moscow, arousing great interest among art lovers

She suffers from Down's syndrome. The list of her works which mainly characterize educational themes are representative of her zeal and creativity.

Sensing deeply the real world with its problems, Maryam heartily incarnates her works with the warmness of her heart and subtle perception of reality. She shows all the beauties of the world by the language of colors and brush.

Juliette Binoche, world famous French actress, says: "Maryam has her own vision on the color combination." She also shared her feeling of being impressed by the creativity of the young artist by saying: "Rose-red, yellow and brown tint, bright green, bloody red, black as antimony - she boldly works with these colors, like the nature creating the bright and harmonious world."

Genny D'Bert, a professor of contemporary art at Rome University of Fine Arts, believes that Maryam is a symbol of the combination of creativity, life, artistic flair, and iconographic communication.
