Interview with FAIG AHMED:

Your childhood ambition:

I think my childhood ambitions were probably such as ambitions of children all over the world—I wanted to travel and explore. I usually spent my summer in the village; I was walking around the nearest forests and mountains. And it was the best game for me. I was enjoying the observation. This ambition is left the same—the journey in all its manifestations. I am still traveling around the world and within my inner space.

Something you treasure:

There are a lot of things, people and ideas that I cherish. But the most important treasure is the moment. In one moment you can cherish one thing, and the next moment you are relishing absolutely different objects. It turns out that you can treasure everything and nothing at the same time.

Your worst habit:

I am always thinking too much about art and can’t stop and focus on one thing.

The aspect of your work that’s most important to you:

Not happened yet.

Your first job:

Cook’s helper and waiter in quick service Turkish restaurant.

Someone whose work you highly recommend:

Farkhad Farzaliyev—a young artist from Azerbaijan. I think he will be the one of those who would completely change the art of the region.
