Askhat Akhmedyarov
Askhat Akhmedyarov was born in 1965 in the village of Aleksandrovo GAI, in the Ural region.

In 1989, he graduated from the art school in Shymkent, where his teachers were Vitaly Simakov and Moldakul Narymbetov. In the early period of the formation of Akhmediyarov as an artist, he was influenced by the work of such masters of world art as Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, and René Magritte. At the same time, Askhat Akhmedyarov participated in several exhibitions of the Shymkent Trans-Avangard.

His works can be analyzed and read at different levels. The author plays with ambiguity and, not without irony, sets a critical distance with the viewer. The mixture of cultures and globalization, which influenced emancipation and artistic excitement, entered, not without risk, dissolving the Kazakh identity.

Through his works, Akhmedyarov is trying to show the viewer the dissonance of an ever-changing world.
