Azerbaijani Artist: Farid Rasulov

UNTITLED #4 From the Architectural Dichotomy series, 2013, Simulated concrete, fibreglass, plywood, wood and glass, 100 x 140 x 132 cm. (39¼ x 55 x 52 in.Untitled 

Last year I meet a someone from Azerbaijani and I was impressed by his drive for being an artist. I was reminded of him when I read Farid Rasulov's biography. Even though he could have been in the medical field, the artist bug bit him too and he began to make artwork that resembles some of the traditional geometric designs of Islamic art, but at an intense level and in domestic settings. His installation of a room is overwhelming. Here is a link to his site.
