Museib Amirov

B. 1963, Baku

Lives and works in Baku

Museib Amirov graduated from the Azimzadeh State Art College in Baku in 1979 and from the M.A. Aliyev State University of Art and Culture in Baku in 1987. Since 1996 Amirov has been a member of the Union of Artists of Azerbaijan. In 2007, he was recognized as an Honorary Artist of Azerbaijan. 

Museib Amirov is a collection of paradoxes. A dreamer, cherishing a touching faith in the idea of creating a gigantic iron bird that is capable of lifting dreamers like himself into the skies over Absheron. A workaholic who does not believe in the need for inspiration. A creative recluse, who by his own acknowledgment is capable of not leaving his workshop for months and a person with an amazing number of friends prepared to do anything for him.

The works of Museib Amirov may be viewed in the following locations: Marmara Gallery, Istanbul, Turkey, Russian Ministry of Culture, Moscow, Russia, Azerbaijan Ministry of Culture, Baku, Azerbaijan, Sanat Gallery, Baku, Azerbaijan, Odjag Gallery, Baku, Azerbaijan, QGallery, Baku, Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan National Fine Art Museum, Baku, Azerbaijan, Museum of Modern Art, Baku, Azerbaijan, as well as in private collections in Azerbaijan, Russia, USA, Sweden, Germany, Great Britain, Turkey, France, Italy, Denmark and Norway.
