Made his international breakthrough in 2013 at Sotheby’s first selling exhibition “At the Crossroads” Contemporary Art from Central Asia, London. Dreams are a recurrent theme in Jamol Usmanov’s oeuvre. Inspired by the Eastern medieval poetry of Rumi, Navoi, Nizami and others, Usmanov’s oeuvre is filled with references to Sufi philosophy. Usmanov’s paintings are a reflection of the artist’s conception of one’s own spiritual journey. Imbued with harmony of form and colour, they exude a feeling of tranquility. The artist masterfully employs concealed messages in order to communicate his own particular worldview.
