What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Workshop Ali Shamsi, Boyuk Qala 84, Baku 1000 Azerbaijan
“Artist from Icherisheher” or “artist with bare feet”, as many call Ali Shamsi, a uniquely creative person living at 84 Little Castle Street in Baku’s Old City. You will notice his workshop as soon as you see it, since it is impossible to ignore his amazing facade, attracting one with its specific energy. His workshop is open to all, who seeing such a mysterious corner wants to find out what is inside. However, it’s rarely possible to find the artist in his home studio: usually he is either traveling, participating in international exhibitions, or climbing to the next mountain. Born in a small village at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains on the banks of the river, Ali never knows in advance what he will draw and improvises while creating his pictures. He lives in perfect harmony with himself and the outside world, and everything that surrounds him comes from trees, as he talks to stones, with which his creativity started. His pictures adorn the walls at the homes of many famous political and cultural figures in the U.S., Germany, Georgia and Russia. And some of his paintings were destroyed on September 11, 2001 in America, along with the Twin Towers.
