|Maryam Alakbarli, "Imitation of Van Gogh", 2015|
Gentleness in shapes and colors.
Maryam Alakabarli was born on July 4, 1991 in Baku, Azerbaijan with Down Syndrome. She has received art instruction to learn about other artist like Van Gogh and Gauguin and how to used paint and art supplies, but her style is a unique and natural vision of the world as her eyes and hand want to portray it. Maryam has had dozens of art exhibitions since 2010, the latest being her selection as one of the artists shown by Gallerie Bruno Massa, Paris, in their booth at the recent "CONTEXT New York" art fair.
"Her painting is feeling. There isn't a single brush stroke that isn't connected to her. There is no affectation, no arrogance, no sentimentality, only the state of grace that sometimes exists in children. Neither composition nor perspective hold any fears for Maryam. Intuition outweighs technique...." - Juliette Binoche
