Chingiz Farzaliyev's artworks

The artist's creative credo is the result of his reflection on man, his spiritual values, his historical mission in life and his relationship with his 'alma mater' - nature. This artistic perspective has shaped the artist's particular attitude towards the untouched beauty of nature, 'undamaged' by the destructive work of man.
