Each story is filled with creativity and details, which, as we know, reflect the very essence.

Fazilya Radjabova

A contemporary artist, famous Baku stylist, has been associated with the fashion and art for many years, in particular, with masterfully transforming the beauty of celebrities and making life even more beautiful. A good stylist can always see the final image from the beginning, piecing it together in the process.
Being a creative person and inspired by art, Fazilya Radjabova began to study mosaic, imbued with its philosophy.
Azerbaijan has always been famous for its mosaics, thanks to talented Azerbaijani artists. Fazilya Radjabova decided to contribute to the process of reviving mosaics in Azerbaijan and created a number of works in the form of mosaic panels that will set up an exhibition called Living Stones. Elena Suvorova also took part in the process of implementing the artist’s creative ideas. It should be noted that this is the first exhibition of Fazilya Radjabova, and it will be held in the creative space of Zaman Art Gallery, one of the principles of which is to support emerging artists.
