Aissulu Kadyrzhanova's exhibit "The Love for Three Oranges” is inspired by the Russian composer Prokofiev's opera with the same title "Любовь к трём апельсинам." It is a magical fairy tale, in which oranges play a central role in the development of the story, and eventually bring love to the main character.
Aissulu Kadyrzhanova is a Philadelphia-based artist, born in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Kadyrzhanova attended Almaty Art College, studied at the renowned Surikov Institute of the Arts in Moscow, Russia, and received her MFA degree in Painting at Tyler School of Art, Temple University.
A unique blend of experiences and education has made Kadyrzhanova a painter with an original point of view. In her work she combines the strong realist traditions of the Russian school of painting together with the more conceptual and experimental approach to painting in the Western art world. Kadyrzhanova works and exhibits in Philadelphia, Moscow, and Almaty.
