Ayan Aziz Mammadova was born in Baku, Azerbaijan. As a child she spent time in her father’s studio, watching him passionately work on his paintings and dreaming that one day she would find an artistic passion of her own. These early memories have inspired and shaped her into the creative individual she is today.
Being surrounded by vibrant and talented artists from a young age has had a great influence on Ayan’s creative development. As she’s grown her artistic style has changed and gained individuality as she’s acquired a host of emotions, moods, and expressions that capture feminine warmth, sensitivity, and complexity. Artist statement: Ayan creates from her inner world, where she is not bound by any conventional forms of artistry. From this space she allows her imagination to overflow onto the canvas, mirroring the soul and showcasing a host of feelings and mood swings that are communicated with feminine nature and rhythmic undertone.
Her work carries an inspiring uniqueness, with sweeping patterns and cascading lines. The paintings are delightfully disorienting, swirling and alive, exploding onto the canvas with bright colors and visual surges of delicate ferocity.
