Vezhdi Rashidov introduces us a new and very personal vision of sculpture as the fruit of a detailed intellectual process that acts as a filter for knowledge and awakens various chimaeric sensations in the audience. This creates a versatile and pluralistic connection between the artist and the viewer.
He offers us a diverse and varied iconographic palette with his skillful possession of the plastic image in the modeling of both a person and human figures, deities and others. In all of them, we find the echoes of artistic movements such as Dali’s surrealism. You can even find touch points with the work of Miro, Giacometti and others. As a result of the merging of these proposals, Vezhdi Rashidov gives us a vivid personal vision of volumes in his vibrant work, filled with content, nuanced and softened with elegant sophistication and sensitivity, thus achieving a perfect balance in the final result of the composition.
