“Colors of Native Land” is the symbolic title of the exhibition of products of over thirty Karakalpakstan artists that started functioning at the capital’s Central Exhibition Hall of the Academy of Arts of Uzbekistan.
The exhibition timed to the 19th anniversary of independence of Uzbekistan acquaints visitors with creativity of masters of different generations. The youngest of them are the students of the boarding school of arts of Karakalpakstan branch of the Arts Academy. They gained rather considerable success in their creativity and two of them are the winners of Zulfiya State Prize – A. Artikova and A. Sapekeeva.

Products represented at the exhibition illustrate all riches and diversity of fine and applied art with their unique color and special features.
“New conditions created for the Karakalpakstan artists during independence year became the important base for revealing of their talents and skills,” noted the head of the Karakalpakstan branch of the Academy of Arts Rohat Askarov. “Good conditions always create a ground for fruitful activity of gifted people, encouraging them, especially youth, for creating perfect works.”

Thus, it is no wonder that many artists prefer to create their works on the theme of love for Motherland, admiration for the nature and rich cultural heritage.
Therefore the creativity of masters of Karakalpakstan is inseparable from the historical roots and traditions of the people. Creating the school of arts, they simultaneously joined into the space of fine art of Uzbekistan devoting much power and time to upbringing comprehensively advanced youth not forgetting about succession of generations. There are many canvases that undoubtedly will attract visitors’ attention, for instance, “Motherhood” by G. Abdurahmanov, “White Flowers” by S. Boybosinov, “Fortress Ayoz” by Y. Atajanov, “Evening in Aul” by  N. Sharipov, “Town at River Bank” by A. Rajapov, as well as bewitching landscapes of native land by F. Madgazin.

A well-known sculptor J. Kuttimuratov devoted his works to glorifying the beauty of women. His laconic sculptures of small plastic forms “Flying Woman”, “Grace” and others are made with such a subtlety that visitors forget that they made of stone.

No one leave indifferent before the full-of-energy canvases of the People’s Artist of Uzbekistan, academician of the Academy of Arts of Uzbekistan J. Izentayev. He created his impressive products during his trips across the republic and abroad. Owing to these trips we could enjoy seeing his canvases as “Green Court-yard”, “Monring Time in Nukus”, “Paris on Siene Banks” and “Portrait of Musician”.

It should also be noted that the influence of collections of the Savitskiy State Museum of Arts of Karakalpakstan in Nukus could be noticed in the creativity of these masters. Their works depict not only rare exhibits with centuries-old history from the archeological excavations at old and medieval palaces of governors but other rarities as well. The world fame was brought to the Nukus Museum by the collection of Russian avant-garde art of the 1920s-1940s. It is the second in the world after the collection of the Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg.
