Beauty, harmony and pacification...
Beauty, harmony and pacification. These words characterize our amazing heroine Anara Abzhanova. The yang talented artist has held the seventh personal exhibition named symbolical “Heart Sounds”.
She was born in Almaty (Kazakhstan) in a small private house on 18th November, 1986. She grew weak. As soon as she started walking, Anara took a brush in her hands. She drew everywhere she could: on walls, on the floor even on clothes. Bazarkul Anara’s mother noticed later that her daughter couldn’t hear. Her father preferred easy way and he left his family. Bazarkul took all the difficulties on her shoulders, and looked after Anara on her own.
When Anara was studying at school she had a serious health predicament. Due to this fact she couldn’t use oil paints, only possible one was acrylic paints, even though they were more expensive. Sometimes there wasn’t any money to buy so necessary paints. In fact there wasn’t minute that she didn’t occupy herself.
After all there was misfortune with Anara’s mother Bazarkul. It was an earthquake, she survived but for a long time she lost her ability to speak. It was difficult time for Bazargul and Anara…
The artist has visited many countries in the world: Iran, Italy, South Korea, Japan, and Russia.
- Art of Japan strongly differ from European and American art – saying Anara – and it’s near to my view. I can see the soul, I can feel it. And Kazakhstani art is Asian and Japanese too. I can get art of Japanese artists better, it is closer to me.

- I create the pictures not by mind. When I write them I have an inspiration, these are sounds which fill me, they live in my heart, and I would like to transfer it. I want people to feel them.
Critics view her works in a stile of modern impressionism. Her works more like the work of French artist Claude Monet and Vincent Nan Gogh. “Winter Morning”, “Wild Leaves”, “The First Snow”. Apparently her pictures especial. Filling if you get to absolutely other world where all is perfect in the grace and beauty. Her creativity is shine unusual light, and in each picture there is a part of Anara. It is the world which is simple and on the magic is fine. Asking about a secret of pictures she answers - I have been working since my childhood very hard. My dream is to show my works abroad. When I was a child I thought to be an animator or designer of clothes, but I have found myself as an artist.
Anara draws basically landscapes. Only one portrait which she created is her mother’s it is special. All love and care are embodied in this picture. Next year Anara wants to go to Russia for the Moscow week of arts, but there is a problem of payment of trips. Bazargul can’t buy tickets for the daughter. And she need a help.
