War & Peace

about Gunduz Aghayev

In the past men created a God of war and blamed mythic Gods for the wars. However, throughout the history only men were responsible for all the bloodshed. Alas, many of us still do not understand this and want to evade the responsibility.

War is a death, a suicide. Nations massacre one another and the whole mankind. Nevertheless, men are able to inhibit this plague. Fortunately, men also invented peace. It is a way of struggle against war. It must be every man’s duty before humanity to continue this struggle.

Born in Azerbaijan in 1981, Gunduz Aghayev studied in Azerbaijan State Painters’ Academy. His first exhibition was held in 2004. The second exhibition of his works was held in Baku Muesum Center. His exhibitions were held outside of country, as well. He took part in exhibitions held in Russia, Turkey as well as Friendship exhibition held by the French embassy in 2002 and international artistry exhibition held in Turkmenistan in 2013.

He also participated in the Art for democracy project. As a protest against injustice in his country he turned to cartoon genre and faced strong pressure; he was sacked of all projects. After constant pressure, in 2014 he left Azerbaijan. His series depict a world at war in a satirical way as in the case of his series: Transformers, Just Leaders, Holy Selfie or Police Offers Around the World about the countries where human rights are abused, such as Russia, Great Britain, China, Turkey, Sudan, etc.
