Born in 1977 in Baku, Azerbaijan Artistic self-expression of Adil Yusif is embodied in his large abstract compositions. Often Adil does not title his works, and this comes from the fact that he doesn’t set a task to reveal a certain subject and doesn’t strive to get some pre-comprehensive and well-considered results. Using the technique of collage, he gets relief texture of the canvas. Fur
For him, the more significant is the process of the work, when inexplicably there is at first sight absolutely chaotic composition, however basically having the accurate picturesque and plastic logic. This artistic task is fundamental in his art.
ther, his paintings start their incomprehensible life, a certain "movement" in space, rising many associations, and gaining almost sacred meaning. Adil Yusif is the graduate of the Azerbaijan State University of Culture and Arts, member of the Union of Artists of Azerbaijan. Adil works a lot and fruitfully, and this is proved by his impressive records: gold medal of the Third International Biennial of the Islamic World Contemporary Painting, the artist brought from Tehran; the first place at the Best Painting of the Year contest, organized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Azerbaijan; he participated in the numerous exhibitions and symposia in Romania, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Austria, South Korea, Egypt, and many other countries.
