In conjunction with the Durdy Bayramov Art Foundation, the Munk School’s Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies is proud to present an exhibit of vibrant photographs by the acclaimed Turkmen artist Durdy Bayramov.

The photos, which were selected from Bayramov’s personal archive, provide a rare and intimate glimpse into the customs and material culture of Turkmen villagers between the 1960s to 1980s.

The exhibit is free and will run from March 16, 2018, to April 11, 2018, in the cloisters at the Munk School’s Trinity College location (1 Devonshire Place).

About the artist

Durdy Bayramov (1938-2014) grew up in an orphanage in Turkmenistan and overcame the significant challenges of his youth to become an acclaimed Eurasian artist. Through a prolific career as a painter that spanned more than 55 years, Bayramov was best known for his compelling portraits. His tender approach evokes the special character and qualities of each of his subjects, with whom he shared a deep rapport.
