Art critic's comment

The artist's talent lies in simplicity, in manner, in ideas. You can take a long look at Alisher's paintings and try to understand what makes them special. Here, content is more important than form, depth of meaning is more important than color. With a couple of strokes, the artist manages to tell one story of life, express deep feelings, make you think about something more important, hidden. Amid the chaos of eccentric strokes, a figure appears, a portrait of an always unknown, but so familiar girl. Who is she? What is she thinking?

The artist himself comments on his work as follows: “The history of each painting has a personal and intimate character. The final work is always the result of our communication, an attempt to convey the inner world, or rather the state of this world, during our interaction - and not only as an artist and model but primarily as a person and a person. ”
