Zafar Nabiev, Tashkent, Uzbekistan
Today there are many artists, but some of them make garbage, which they call art. I will create an exhibition out of trash, but will tell people passing by that it is art. It will be interesting to see who believes me and who doesn’t.
Zafar graduated from the National College of Art with a specialization in painting and continued his studies at the Begzoda Institute of Design and Arts. In his work, Zafar strives to address important and sensitive societal issues and is working on a reinterpretation of contemporary art –developing it in such a way so that it is beneficial to society. Zafar works in a variety of mediums and with all available materials. Zafar is looking forward to meeting American artists and sharing experiences with them. He hopes to conduct a joint project with American colleagues.
