Azerbaijani artist Nigar Narimanbayova, who is extremely popular in France, will present her paintings at the ART EN CAPITAL 2015 exhibition, to be held in Paris.
The opening will take place on November 24 at the Grand Palais, a large historic site with an exhibition hall and museum complex.
Narimanbayova told the local media that the exhibition would feature art works by the best artists and sculptors from across the world.
“I am happy to represent Azerbaijan for the second time at such a prestigious art event. I was invited to participate at the Salon of Independent Artists, which was once founded by Van Gogh and his friends,” she noted.
The artist will present a diptych consisting of two paintings from her "All of life is a theater" series.
A diptych consists of two flat plates attached by a hinge. The artist’s diptych will present her paintings “Apotheosis of Love” and “Nostalgia.”
These paintings gained popularity after being presented in several European countries.
The exhibition will last until November 29.
Earlier in October, Narimanbayova put her works on display at the “Salon Business Art” exhibition, which opened at the Pierre Cardin Center in Paris.
Some 12 paintings by the artist featured at the exhibition, including her “Magic of Night,” “Broken wings,” “Soul,” and “Nostalgia.”
Narimanbayova, who divides her time between Paris and Baku, graduated from the Azim Azimzade Azerbaijan State Art School and the Gerasimov All-Union State Institute of Cinematography in Moscow.
She has participated in a number of national and international art exhibitions in France, Germany, Austria, and Azerbaijan.
The artist is a member of the Union of Artists of Azerbaijan and the International Association of Art. Her paintings have been put on display in the exhibition halls of the Azerbaijani Culture and Tourism Ministry, Azerbaijan National Museum of Art, as well as in private collections.
