Artist Rashid Kulbatyrov paints watercolor impressionist scenes of Kazakhstan and his travels. His work pays homage to the traditions and customs of being part of the Great Steppe, seen through a modern lens. Rashid challenges himself to experiment with various styles and techniques—expressiveness, bright colors, and movement appearing most evident. "Most of my work possesses dynamic paint application in various color schemes, but I show no indifference to monochromatic palettes," says Rashid. His multicultural exposure gives him limitless inspiration, gathering insight from everywhere he visits and everyone he meets. Formulations of different forms and color combinations make up his compositions. He works at his studio in his hometown of Almaty, a small but cozy creative space. A radio accompanies him and his activities during the creation of his works. Rashid produces his work with relaxed but decisive brush strokes, sometimes with the addition of a palette knife. Arising a deep love for his roots, he aims to share the sacredness and beauty of his culture. He has been hailed as one of the most influential artists in Kazakhstan, whose works have been evaluated at the highest level in European countries. He enjoys traveling to other countries with his family on creative pauses to further help him gather new creative ideas.
