BY MAMATJAN JUMA
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

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.
