Chorsu. Old city. Canvas, oil. 2008 The art of masters of the brush such as U. Tansykbaev, N. Karahan, N. Kuzybaev and many others provides inspiration for young landscape artists, and Nuriddin Narziev is one of them. He once said that «Pictorial Art is nature itself. It differs from other art forms. In my opinion, it is truly a miracle. If you are surrounded by the world of fine art, you are surrounded by the most beautiful thing in this world. This period in my creative work is a period of cognizing the world, the human being and myself in it».

Narziev dedicated a number of his works to historic architectural monuments; he also painted urban and rural landscapes. He is interested in natural scenery, courtyards, gardens, streets and villages. His paintings captivate by extraordinarily beautiful combination of architectural forms and colour solutions. To better understand Narziev’s art, one should look at his landscapes.

Nature is the foundation of Nuriddin’s art that reveals all the secrets of nature’s colour palette. In his numerous studies the artist seeks to find the most characteristic compositional solutions. Most of his landscapes are dedicated to late autumn, sultry summer, or harsh winter. He glorifies nature with his brush. For him there are no restrictions in choosing a theme. Narziev paints nature and people. Still, landscape remains his favourite genre, with he related to from his childhood years.
