Galiy Abdurakhmanova (1956-)
Graduated from the Sh.Rustavely Art School in Ashkhabad and the Tashkent Theatre and Art Institute. Majority of her paintings can be described as genre scenes, but due to acute style of her painting, her bright and colourful works have a specific meaning. The subject matter is only the pretext for creating a joyful world, where everything is amazingly beautiful. One can find a resemblance with ancient Oriental miniature painting in her works conveyed by a wide range of colours and a refinement of paintings.
