Rhythmic lines

Music flowing from the African heart, became a vivifying source for many directions in the world music. So-called primitiveness of the African fine arts inspired many great artists.

During my first solo exhibition “Roots of life grow to the sky” my friend Rustam Abdullaev played his bass guitar and one of the guests wrote down for me some signs from writing system of Ndsibidi – one of the most ancient african languages. The signs of Ndsibidi and music of Rustam inspired me when I created this series, dictating the plastic of lines and rhythm.

I have developed some of these works as sketches for T-shirts so they do not have thin lines. Subsequently, I have continued a series simply because I liked plastic expressiveness without details of faces.
