Azerbaijan

Artist


Samir Salahov is an interdisciplinary artist working in various fields of visual and conceptual arts, which include street and digital art, artist books, graphics, painting and installations. His work is highly inspired by his surroundings and Azerbaijani traditional culture as well as influenced by his architectural studies. Drawing is a core in Salahov’s art practice that bridges classic Soviet book drawing with utterly unique character representation, contemporary colors, and texture application - in both still and moving images. He possesses a keen knack for storytelling and visual commentary, relating to the common struggles of everyday life, represented through the prism of humour
