AXIOM OF TRADITIONS
"The general pattern of the history of Uzbekistan
art is that the visual and
ornamental and decorative arts developed
here in a single alloy "
The amazing sense of color, rhythm, decorative ornament, the perception of the people of the East, which are inherent in Uzbek folk art, proved to be extremely consonant and close both to artistic and philosophical searches of the avant-garde.
Many artists have found and still find their source of inspiration in the traditional culture of Central Asia. The local environment - folk art, customs, an unusual way of life - served as fertile ground for creative experiments of artists.
Inexhaustible figurative nature, bright decorative colorfulness gives rise to the interaction of various types of decorative and applied art, manifested in the flow of motives, textures, color, compositional techniques. The nature of the passage of works of decorative and applied art largely changed, taking into account new technologies, the use of non-traditional materials, conjectural orders. The attendant factors of innovations further reveal the structure of the traditions of folk art, which is the true basis of any professional art at all times.
Comparison of paintings with Uzbek decorative art makes it possible to demonstrate the uniqueness of Uzbek painting, which has received the continuation of the peoples of Central Asia.
