Illuminated by the Moon

This lovely village scene is painted by Aziz Ahmedov, an upcoming Uzbek artist known for his study and paintings of architectural monuments and Uzbek life. The painting captures life in an Uzbek village replete with mud homes and the donkey sheltered for the night. Aziz has an amazing ability to depict light and here captures not just the moonlight but lamp-lit windows and wisps of smoke from the large cooking pan.

His signature is Muhamadi as a tribute to his grandfather whose name was Muhammad and whose work inspired Aziz from a young age. Aziz attended the Republican Art School in Tashkent from age 9. He then went on to do his bachelor and master's degrees from the Art Institute in Tashkent named after Kamoliddin Behzod. His thesis was on the Ak-Saray Palace in Shakhrisabz, his home town. He has done solo and group exhibitions in Moscow, Dubai, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.

Simply framed, this oil painting can be complemented with smaller ones from the village scene collection.
