Taraz Kazakhstan Art
More than 50 people are currently on trial for their involvement in deadly ethnic clashes in February that shocked the Central Asian country. Taraz akimat Municipality is building the largest tourist center in Kazakhstan. I took the day off to take a city tour and see many of the city's sights surrounded by the Tian Shan Mountains, including Tajikistan National Park - Kazakhstan and Tashkent International Airport - Turkmenistan.
I went on a 9-day Central Asia vacation to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan to explore many of the major cities along the Silk Road. I crossed the border in Uzbekistan and reached the international airport Tashkent, where I will explore the city of Taraz, the capital of Turkmenistan and the second largest city in the country.
Check out my previous posts about Taraz, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and the Silk Road in Central Asia to learn more about the city.
The city of Taraz, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and the Silk Road in Central Asia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries with their unique architecture and art.
The Kazakhstan delegation, which consisted of more than 100 delegates, was led by the President of the Republic of Turkmenistan, Minister of Culture and Tourism of Taras, Dr. Akhmet Makhachkala. The delegation consisted of representatives of leading medical centres, hospitals, universities and other institutions. Representatives of a number of museums, galleries, art galleries and cultural institutions from Kazakhstan participated in the ceremony.
The ceremony was attended by the President of Turkmenistan, Minister of Culture and Tourism of Taras, Dr. Akhmet Makhachkala, and representatives of a number of other institutions.
Local painters, graphic artists and sculptors, trained in the Soviet Union system of artistic education, began active work in Taras according to national motifs, trained by their parents and teachers.
During the Turkish period, the southern and southwestern regions of Kazakhstan were strongly influenced by the culture of the ancient peoples of Central Asia such as Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. The ancient craftsmen refined the primitive vessel designs, which made the decoration more complicated. Each decorative work is a product of a different era in the history of art in Taras, but together they had a great influence on the creativity of the artists.
The painting shows a 600-year-old chronicle that begins with the birth of the first ruler of Taras, considered the founding father of modern Kazakh statehood, and ends with a picture of our modern capital Astana. The renewed interest in this period of history was revived after Putin questioned Kazakhstan's permanence as a nation - a state. The Russian leader's remarks at an event in the Kyrgyz Republic were quickly recognised by many in Kazakhstan as a link. Astana has not been publicly associated with the "celebration of statehood" of his remarks.
But what is it really about and what does it mean for the future of the country and Kazakhstan as a whole in terms of statehood?
The two integrated directions differ in Madikhan's creative approach: when the artist creates vital, trusting images and when he tries to change the multiplanet ethnic world view. It is gratifying to see that his works of art are based on human values connected with Kazakh culture and its priceless heritage. One example is the painting "S. Alzhanov," which is preserved in the traditions and customs of our nation. With this exhibition as a prime example, the celebration also shows that he studied Kazakh history and incorporated this knowledge into his art.
The light East is depicted in the artist's paintings "S. Alzhanov" ("Crowded Noisy Market") and "Kazakhstan," in which the light "East" is depicted as a bright blue sky and the dark "West" as dark blue.
During the Bronze Age, the area of modern Kazakhstan was inhabited by the Saka, a group of people from the northern part of modern Kazakhstan. In the first millennium BC, they occupied a number of works of art that constitute the Saka, such as the works "Kazakhstan," "Zazhanov" and "Tazaz" ("Crowded Noisy Market").
The most famous discoveries from the Saka era were made in the Issyk Hill area near the city of Almaty in Kazakhstan. The rock paintings and engravings were discovered in 1957, and the treasures of the Issyk Hill, including an exact copy of the "Golden Man," were originally exhibited in the Kazakh Archaeology Museum in Al maty and are now part of the Kazakh National Archaeological Museum in Krasnoyarsk.
The exhibition also features works by modern Kazakh printmakers, including watercolors by K. Sakirov and prints by artists from Almaty. The work will culminate in a multimedia community art exhibition and will include interactive art actions based on local participation. This event is organized by the Kazakh National Archaeological Museum in Krasnoyarsk and the Kazakh National Museum of Art and Culture.
