Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Aspar Karahyuseinov

London, United Kingdom
The functional minimalism underlies my art philosophy regardless the medium I use to express certain idea. That is why, self-analysis and auto-critique are crucial for me and I believe a good piece of work is achieved when the balance between aesthetics, concept and function is found.
