Gurbangeldy Gurbanov became the member of the Artist’s Union of the USSR in 1987. Since 1970 he has taken part in national and international exhibitions and art fairs. Artist’s paintings and graphic works have been acquired by Tretyakov Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts in Ashgabat, the State Museum of Arts of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Private Ludwig Gallery in Germany and also by private collectors in Europe, and United States. In 2011 Gurbangeldy was awarded as the Honored Artist of Turkmenistan. The artist who gained fame as a great master of graphics, in his appeal to painting retains a graphic subtlety and versatility. The search for the meaning of human existence, the continuity of the concepts of good and beauty, boundless faith in the wisdom of people’s experience – all this is clearly read in the works of the artist.
