Lives and works in Baku
Reza Hazare is an Afghan artist born in an Afganian refugee family. He graduated from the Visual Arts School of Teheran in 2005, and moved right after in Azerbaijan where he pursued his studies. In 2012 he finished study at Azerbaijan State Academy of Arts.
An Afghan artist Reza Hazare living in Azerbaijan. Originally coming from a country ruled by Sharia law, Reza`s art has a strong patriarchal character; even his choice of the medium – pencil and paper – is old fashioned. His inner being is thorn between East/South and West/North. He came from an Islamic country to Azerbaijan, a secular environment to which he now needs to adapt.
Hezare works constantly questions the living conditions of human beings after a war has ended, the status of refugees, and the way one can rebuild life after such events. His works is focused on the meaning of life, the crisis of traditional society and immigration issues. Reza explore the events that took place within my nation after the civil war – the absence of civil values as well as basic human rights, the disintegration of my family in exile. I am interested in the paradoxes of human thinking and actions in different situations. Through my work I strive to achieve a better position, satisfaction and peace for the forgotten man.
