  • Сreativ (painting)

    Aydar Akhatov paints pictures in different styles and genres (realism, Renaissance, surrealism, modernism, expressionism, cubism, pop art, etc.), using various techniques (oil painting, tempera, pastel, acrylic, drawing, watercolor, etc.).

    In the early 21st century, Aydar Akhatov invented a new style of painting, which he called "art-sensualism" (from Lat. Sensus – perception, feeling, sensation), the meaning of which is that the result depends only on the creativity of impressions, feelings of the artist, and not by a so-called objective reality. Any particular item of reality any artist can paint their own way and this will be his only true reality at the time of the creative process.

    The creator of the new language of painting Aydar Ahatov reveals in his paintings elusive, fleeting harmony of man and the environment.

    Aydar Akhatov wrote more than 350 paintings, which are not only involved in exhibitions, but also purchased by private collectors and museums around the world (US, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, Japan, Italy, etc.).
