Bazarbay Serekeev (1942-)
Graduated from the Republican Art school named after Benkov (1962-1969) in Tashkent. Serekeev’s creative activity is characterized with his eager to develop his own artistic manner of painting and to find his own way to in revealing the subject matter. The narrative and domestic scenes take an important place in his paintings. There he depicts the people with their everyday concerns and occupations. Very often he combines in his works genre scenes and landscape which mutually enrich and complete each other. He is one of the active artists in Karakalpakstan panting usually out-of-doors. Serekeev likes most of all the rural motifs, the subject of labour. Colour and texture of his brushwork convey emotional atmosphere of his compositions.
