The exposition combining about 100 works by Amangeldy Hydyr was opened in the Exhibition Hall of the Ministry of culture and TV and Radio broadcast of Turkmenistan, the Ashgabat correspondent of Turkmenistan.ru reports.
Amangeldy Hydyr was born in Arapjik village of Balkan province in 1951. He proved to be a talented painter and graphic artist from the very beginning of his art career. His works have always been noted for original style, softness of color spectrum and peculiar individuality of perception of the outer world. Amangely Hydyr is a member of Painters Union of Turkmenistan since 1988. He has regularly participated in international expositions, including personal ones. Two of them, "My Turkmenistan" (1997) and "In the Karakym desert" (1998), were held in Moscow. Today, the museums of Balkanabat and Ashgabat feature the master's works. Over 55 pictures found their places in private collections in Turkmenistan, Russia, Germany, Poland and the U.S.
The main topic of Amangely Hydyr's works is the nature and ancient history of the homeland. Sincerity of feelings, trustworthy intonations, simplicity and clarity of the painter's art design catch the viewers' eyes at the first sight. Among other works the exposition also features portraits of fellow countrymen and genre paintings depicting traditions and customs of Turkmen people.
Other, somewhat unusual exhibits are of no less interest. These are fragments of withered branches of trees and bushes and the so-called immortelle reminding of birds and animals as well as amazing stone "sculptures" created by nature and picked up by the painter's sharp eye.
The exposition was arranged jointly by the Painters Union of Turkmenistan and the Ministry of culture and TV and Radio broadcast of Turkmenistan.
