Young and talented artist Zarnishan Yusif has found an unusual use for money. Artist's personal exhibition  opened in QGallery on May 12, Trend Life reported.

The exhibition includes more than 30 works, each of which represents artist's attitude who perceives the surrounding world through the prism of various monetary banknotes inscribed in the canvas.

Among the banknotes depicted on the artist's canvases, one can see unique, ancient specimens that have been actively used in the territory of Azerbaijan throughout the last century, from the beginning of the last century to the present day. And it is not by chance that the exhibition "MONEY, MONEY, MONEY" is timed to the 100th anniversary of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR).

Zarnishan Yusif said that the exhibited works are divided into three series: one includes banknotes of different countries, the second is works devoted to Chinese money, the third series of works is completely devoted to money bills of Azerbaijan.

The artist's desire to seek new and to be different, openness to the left no one  indifferent. Zarnishan`s canvases are distinguished by fluidity of forms, multilayered texture and rich content. They are highly expressive and  simple at the same time.

But absolutely all of her paintings surprise with a complex coloristic expression 

The exhibition will last until May 31. Admission is free.
