Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Aniwar Mamat (b. 1962 Kashgar, lives and works in Beijing) Beijing-based Aniwar Mamat is China's most famous Uighur contemporary visual
artist. His brother Aksar is China's most famous Uighur rock and roll musician.
After graduating from Beijing's Central Academy of Minorities, he became a full time
professor of art at Beijing's Central Academy of Fashion Design. Aniwar is well
known in China's contemporary art world, where he has been actively exhibiting
since the 1990's. Aniwar was a pioneer in developing an abstract painting
language, using traditional Uighur color palettes and motifs to create his unique
visual language. Today, he not only continues his painting practice, but also takes his abstract painting language on to traditional pressed wool felt tapestries. Works from Aniwar's "Tapestry Painting" series are collected by Swire Properties; SWATCH Watch Group in Switzerland, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and others.
See the following video on the making of his "tapestry painting" series. https://vimeo.com/204999456

Artist Profile

Born: 1962

Hometown: Xinjiang

Lives and Works: Beijing

A singular force in China’s contemporary art scene, Aniwar Mamat creates abstract paintings influenced by his earlier experiments in minimalism and figural representation, as well as by the history of Abstract Expressionism. As a young man in Western China, Aniwar was trained in Uighur carpetmaking, and his works recall felt or woven fabric. But within the abstractions are hints of desert landscapes, wind whipping through cityscapes, and the peaceful quiet of the inner world. To capture these small moments of sensation, he has developed new paints, including a water-soluble pigment that he uses in conjunction with environmental forces such as wind and rain. The result is paintings focused more on poetic and emotional response than the political statements so common in his peers.
