YAY Gallery invites you to the meeting with Azerbaijani artist Amrulla Israfilov on August 24.

Amrulla Israfilov (b. 1962) is one of the artists of the Azerbaijan modern art who works in direction of pure and abstract painting. 

With expression of highlights of plain and ordinary life in his oeuvre, he denies the assumptions of narrative art.  It delivers emotions directly to the viewer. His figures reveal nature with the gestures, costumes and recognizable elements of occupation.   

Currently his works displayed at YAY Gallery as a part of Bodily Landscapes exhibition. 

The exhibition shows landscapes, in which nature obtains human features and the human body gets objectified creating a perception that is detached from any gender identification dissolving into earthly forms and colours, vivid projection surfaces of internal states. 

Moderator: Farah Alakbarli

Time: 7 pm                        

Venue: YAY Gallery, Icheri Sheher, 5, Kichik Gala str.
