Chekirov, Talantbek

Born on April 15th, 1971 in the former Soviet republic of Kyrgystan, is an interesting new discovery in the sphere of ornamental art.

His paintings show varied aspects of the beautiful and the decorative art; his works are extracts of his rich and broadly situated ideas concerning the ideal notion of beauty in paintings. Therefore, it is of little surprise that such dissimilar genres as landscapes and stylised antique nude paintings are represented in his work.

Talantbek Chekirov visited the State College of Art from 1986 to 1990. In this period, Chekirov acquired detailed knowledge in the fields of plastic anatomy, graphics and composition, which highlights his work as an artisan. In 1990, Chekirov completed his education in the domain of the creative arts with majors in theatrical painting and constructive art. Thereafter his path led him toward the world famous Bolschoi Theatre in Moscow, where he took over the artistic staging of the scenery between 1990 und 1992.

During his travels through Europe from 1992 until 1994, he studied the most important works and artists that had been kept obscured from him during his studies at college. The artist lives in the regions of Westfalen and Baden for the time being.
