Born in Azerbaijan, Alaskarzade Zemfira Niyazi fastidiously uses materials such as watercolor, watercolor pencils, dry pastels, oil, acrylic, and gouache to produce vibrant and arresting work.
After successful exhibitions and features in several publications, Zemfira is recognized for her bold confident style, inspired by the ideas of impressionism in the transmission of the first emotions, impressions, and expressionism – a vivid demonstration of feelings. The main genre of her work is portraiture, where she seeks to show, through facial expressions and color, the inner beauty of a person: character, emotions, and feelings. We caught up with her to discuss her work in more detail.
