We proudly present a new project from Exquisite Art, dedicated to the production of canvas prints.

At the high table of contemporary art, the master photographer sits comfortably beside the master painter. Artistic photographs, no longer confined to coffee table magazines and brochures, are now adorning the spaces, and indeed the frames, once preserved for paintings - and to stunning effect. In Singapore, as with other major cities in the world, artistic photo prints are in increasing demand as a decorating solution for houses, apartments and offices.
Photo prints for interior spaces are more than classical forms of art; they are consistent with the spirit of the times, the needs of modern people and the style of our lives. Create an individual, original, stylish decor for your home or office with a photo print - perhaps a dynamic urban landscape, the visual intensity of a living creature frozen at a moment in time, or a glamorous celebrity. Let your guests puzzle over whether your canvas prints are photos or paintings!
Everyone has heard their names. They are very well known. You can read about them in the newspapers. Their paintings can be found in the best houses of the world. Royalties, Church leaders and other powerful people have commissioned their portraits to these artists.
We are pleased to introduce you talented artists whose works are in the Exquisite Art collection.
This section contains biographies of our artists, media articles about their work, contemporary art information and much more. Paintings of these artists are always available for sale in our online store.
Shukhrat was born in 1970 in Samarkand. In 1989 he graduated from the Republican Art College named after P. Benkov.
In 1995 he graduated from the Tashkent Theater and Art Institute.
Painting, for Shukhrat Abdumalikov, is not just a hobby, but a way of life with a constant search for a theme, color, and form. The world created by the artist is lyrical and fragile, poetic and uneasily vulnerable. There is always a sharp, personal attitude of the artist in search of depth and harmony, remaining within the framework of canonical characters and subjects. The characters of his paintings are silent. They seem to sit for the artist. Their plasticity is static. This engenders the dialogue effect between the picture and the viewer. The "static nature" of the picture lets the viewer to immerse into its inner world, but at the same moment there is a feeling that it is studying the viewer looking at it.

Shakhnoz Abdullaeva was born in 1965 in the art capital of Central Asia city of Tashkent, Uzbekistan. In 1989 she graduated from The Theatrical Art Institute of Ostrovsky.
Shakhnoz has been an active participant in international art exhibitions since 1988, and her original paintings can be found in both private and national collections.
Shakhnoz Abdullaeva is a famous Uzbek artist. The main themes of her works are the women of the East – legendary poetesses, queens and goddesses. Her works fascinate by its elegant color combinations and interesting stories.
We can often see images of moving Central Asian Arba in her works. Through her work artist is trying to determine the position of women, building a balance between the thoughts and cultural memory.
Since 1997 the artist’s work changed as she began to use limited palette. Because of this the works became more sophisticated and refined. Backgrounds are also changed and become more complex and differ from the usual associations.
Her beauties turned into angels with sensuous character and emotion. It’s especially manifested in the works of "Nostalgia" and "Pearl" (1997).
Since 2003 the works of artist changed again – we can see mood of contemplation and self-absorption. Her character strives for far and more sublime world. We can be traced in the work "Paradise. Angel "(2003)," Conversation in the Vineyard "(2006) and others. In the works of Shakhnoz Abdullaeva we can see that repeated position gestures, shapes, plastic and regal amazing perfection dominate in female images. An imaginary world of the artist is a kind of utopian dreams and is a desirable way.
The work of the artist is a dream comes true for many talented young girls who are just embarking on uncharted path with many hopes and new discoveries.
