N2N Gallery is proud to invite all aspiring and established artists in Abu Dhabi to work with and learn from acclaimed Crimean master Ramazan Useinov, displayed in museums around the world and in private collections in Europe, Asia and America.

Ramazan Useinov’s master classes are a great opportunity to learn from a top artist with a unique style and vision. If you missed his first master class, this is the right moment to take a second chance to meet the master and feel the eastern spirit.

Under the name “Paint Me a Story” – the new series of master classes with Ramazan Useinov are something to get excited about. This time oriented more towards his art; he is looking forward to share his technique and style with students of N2N Gallery.

Ramazan’s creative painting is celebrated by collectors and art critics alike. Anyone learning from the master has a rare chance to plunge into a journey of true artistic discovery and growth.  He portrays a dream like reality – fantastical animals, stylized men and women, the elderly, simple but magical scenery – the artists tells us of profound understanding and love of his home in Central Asia. What would be your story like?

You will learn from beginning how to think, see and reason like Ramazan Useinov, through the guidance of the artist himself. Under a gentle guidance you will make your life story vivid trying to use artist’s figures in a close connection with your memories. As a result, you will have your own version of a story, unique and unforgettable, personally created by you.

At the end of the course, you will know how to build a composition, how to use palette and apply paint. You will be able to pick the format and the rhythm of the work. You will come out of the master classes knowing how to independently compose a piece of art from start to finish.

The 5 days (18 hours) course will take place at N2N Gallery Al Ain Tower (located opposite Jones the Grocer, Khalidiyah, ground floor, entrance through Costa Café), starting 18th of November 2017.

Briefly about the artist:

Ramazan Useinov was born in 1949, in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, far away from his beloved Crimea. In Uzbekistan he grew up between vineyards, as his father was a winegrower and winemaker who dreamt for his son to take over the family’s small business. After a long and big confrontation with his family, he finally became a student at the Republican College of Arts P.P. Benkov in Tashkent. Like graduated artist, in 1972, Ramazan returned to Samarkand where he started to work at the Art Foundation. In the early 90’s, he returned to the land of his parents. Useinov’s artworks are displayed in museums in Moscow, Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, Nukus, Sevastopol, Simferopol and are kept in private collections in Europe, Asia and America.

Homework: It’s highly recommended to study Ramazan’s work before starting these classes. You need to bring a sketch of the story you will depict as your important memory when the first day comes.  This is the starting point for all students without which one can’t move on and work with the artist!

Day 1 (6 hours): Introduction & building foundations for the piece

The artist will present his vision, implementation, objectives and skills to be achieved during the master class. He will look all the sketches of the students and help to make necessary changes to achieve a right composition.

You will gradually work on your knowledge about all that is included in Ramazan’s work.  The artist will be demonstrating the process, for you to understand how to approach the canvas and engage with creative task. Ramazan will show you how to overcome his techniques so you can achieve the goal.

By the guidance of the artist, you will be able to bring to a canvas color layers that contain appropriate combinations releasing the light. Known for his consistency he will meticulously show you how he built his own style with intense and restrained emotion of his characters. You will build your composition using the right colors get by mixing, making them unique and winning new dimensions. The main thing is to know when to stop, to recognize the moment when the work is done – the feeling is telling so and artistic eye, as well. Then, the harmony will be created.
