"Paintings are like children-- it's hard to say which one you love the most," so says artist Fatima Argun, as she shares her colorful and vibrant paintings and the inspirations behind them. She shows how she tries to balance colors, shapes, and textures, and explains the various sources of inspiration that give her works a special quality: the richness of the Turkish culture, Rumi's poetry, and the rhythms of music.

Mamatjan Juma is an artist who was trained in the style of Socialist Realism, in which ideology was paramount. He began questioning this notion and exploring more abstract styles after his move to the United States. Through "snapshots" of his paintings, he shows the development of his style, where beauty, balance, and limitlessness are expressed without the need to stand for an ideology.
