Namazbek Chekirov was born on February 6th, 1979 in the former Soviet Republic of Kyrgyzstan. As a child he was fascinated and inspired by paintings of cities, landscapes and nature.
Namazbek attended the State Art Academy in Kyrgyzstan from 1997 to 2001. His painting offers us extraordinary impressions and authentic details. The remarkable vividness and subtleties foun...d in his paintings capture the essence of time standing still.
When Chekirov visited the New York metropolis for the first time, he was simply overwhelmed. He immediately began photographing homes and neighborhoods. Later he turned them into his paintings. In his works New York is portrayed as a melting pot of cultures, as the light-flooded heartbeat of modernity. Strong penetrating colors help him to present the momentary impressions of the big in a modern language of art.
In 2002 Namazbek moved to Germany, where he continues to live and work today, alongside his artistically acclaimed brother Talantbek Chekirov.
Namazbek Chekirov consistently exhibits his works in several renowned galleries in Europe and the United States.
