Calm atmosphere has found its expression in the paintings of Ramazan Useinov whose art is best described as poetic and symbolic, harbors no illusion of idealism despite the vivid imagination used by the painter. He portray a dream like reality - fantastical animals, stylized men and women, the elderly, simple but magical scenery - the artist tells us of profound understanding and love of his home in Central Asia. He moved from Uzbekistan to his homeland of Crimea but he never forgot a life he has in the past and his art is always followed by memories. Every canvas he depicted is one story about his past life and these stories are giving us possibilities to end them up.
