"Minabi - Patterns of the Universe" is a bright palette that reflects the artist's personal feelings.  The artist expressed her inner world not only in paintings but also in furniture, painting on crockery, textiles and accessory.

Just this diversity created the very Universe of the artist, which she decided to share. The distinctive works of Milena Nabiyeva makes an unusual approach to creating art paintings. In addition to traditional acrylic and oil paints, she uses Swarovski stones. As the artist herself says, she wants to give even more brightness to colors not only in color, but also to add sparkle crystal placer of glares.

The combination of colors in the works of the artist is a celebration of love and life, a vivid manifestation of the solar paints that characterized the nature of the author. 

Milena’s path to the art began with an interest in patterns characteristic of Turkic motives. She admits: ‘Patterns are interesting to me in any manifestation. My long-standing passion for history flowed into the study of patterned designs. Especially those ‘covered with historic dust.’ They have so much mysticism, mystery, hidden meaning.’

The artist claims that the patterns are all around us. “We should only want to see them: in a pool, in the shade of leaves, in the reflection on glass... “

"Minabi - Patterns of the Universe" that will run until February 11 gives guests the space, filled with rich vibrant colors.
