Sculptor Zamin Rzayev was born in 1989 in Nakhichevan. His parents made sure he had the necessary resources to develop his talent for drawing, which he developed at an early age.
Later, he turned to clay as his artistic medium. He later entered the Academy of Art, where he would spend most of his time in the workshop studying his craft.
According to Zamin, there’s nothing hard or difficult about art - one simply has to love one’s work in order for it to seem easy.
“In order to create a sculpture, sometimes you need a few months. You can, of course, turn one out in a shorter period of time, but it won’t be as successful a piece as you might have wanted. When I am creating, new ideas constantly come to my mind. And every time I make better and better additions to the piece I had originally conceived of. This in turn inspires me for other works.
If a rich but tasteless person begins to tell me how to go about the job, I lose my inspiration rather quickly. Currently, whoever has money doesn’t have taste - and whoever has taste doesn’t have money. That’s why I’d like to improve my financial situation in the future, so as to be able to gift sculptures that I’ve made with love to people with good taste.”
