AITOKUA is the story about the most famous contemporary Azerbaijani artist Djavad MirDjavadov (1923AE"1992). His notes were compiled by his talented and devoted wife, Lyubov MirDjavadova, which give us unusual insights into the artistic, social, and political life of the Soviet Union and Azerbaijan Republic of the twentieth century. From DjavadovAEs musings and jottings, she describes in a stream of consciousness and poetic style, how very ordinary things, observations, and events were transformed into remarkable paintings; how everyday life was mixed with cutting-edge aesthetics and new art was born. AITOKUA is an unusual book compared to traditional artist's biographies. You will discover a new earthy philosophy that deals with the mix of reality, unreality, art, and basic truths.
Lyubov MirDjavadova was the wife of the artist, Djavad MirDjavadov. This is her first book published in English. Her previous publications in Russian include works on contemporary art, poems, and novels.
