Ayan Aziz Mammadova, Autumn still life

Seven colours of the colour spectrum, usually they blend harmoniously with one another, the most famous example would be the creation green from yellow and blue, however, what would happen to them if they all quarrelled? I think there would be a terrible explosion. The so-called explosion of colours - when multi-coloured splashes fly up, filling the space with brightness and fascinating beauty that at same time expresses the versatility, and the diversity of the world around us, opening up the possibility of freedom of choice for everyone.

Ayan Aziz Mammadova, Universe

Summer morning, pleasing to the eye with bright colours… In an instant, everything can be destroyed by pressing only one button...and then the dark skeletons of once towering cities will appear before the eyes...and there, somewhere far, far away, it froze, but some kind of life still glimmers…sadly, drooping, lowering their heads, they try to survive, once amazing with their unimaginable beauty and quivering tenderness, beautiful the cold breath of suddenly coming winter...has made them orphans, her cold breath enveloped the gardens with magic flowers that were full of life and children’s laughter until recently, now frozen in a sad expectation of their end, covered with hoarfrost... crying with tears.

Ayan Aziz Mammadova, Evil Eye

This depiction of the evil eye part of the series of art pieces that I have devoted to this topic. The evil eye is a curse or legend believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury. Talismans created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called “evil eyes”.

Ayan Aziz Mammadova, Mood Flares

The world we live in is a colourful canvas in which all the colours of life are involved... It is orange, turning into red - the colour of despair, the cry of children to the sounds of sirens somewhere very close to war, blood and fighting… this is black - destructive, unreal, impossible, but alas, it became possible, real… purple is the colour of creativity… blue is a reflection, and thus the realisation of righteousness, that is, the ascent to the blue colour, however, only yellow is the lowest step of the ascent, stepping on, perhaps, an opportunity for humanity to climb it, and move up to blue - the colour of heaven, spirituality and forgiveness...
