Aziza Saliev

Art has been Aziza’s means of self-expression, escape, and connection with like-minded individuals since childhood.  Use of exaggerated elements in her paintings, such as elongated necks and prominent focal subjects, are intentional choices to convey emotions. The whimsical girls, expressions, and miniature worlds around them serve as storytelling tools. In her paintings, Aziza primarily works with oil. She often uses  palette knife and brush dot applications to showcase oil’s rich texture and color. Despite persuing career in nursing, art has remained an integral part of her life. Through her unique portrayals of whimsical girls, Saliev expresses the aspirations of hope and empowerment for women globally and for her own two daughters. She aims to foster a fresh generation of resilient, educated, and free-spirited women who bring kindness and support to the world. 

Aziza Saliev was born and raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, where she grew up surrounded by a rich mix of cultures and traditions, including Uzbek, Turkish, Russian, Persian, and others. It is from this diverse surroundings that she frequently draws her inspirations.

Outside of her artistic pursuits, Aziza values the time she spends with her family. Her ultimate goal is to make a significant impact on the community and people’s lives through both nursing and art.
