Seymour Rahimov

Architect

Seymour Rahimov - founder, owner and director of Pomegranate Studios, a young architect, designer and sculptor with high perspectives.

Love to draw manifested in the teenager’s dream of becoming an architect. In 2009 he graduated from Azerbaijan State University of Architecture with the diploma in Architecture. Currently he is studying at Azerbaijani State Arts Academy at the Faculty of Sculpture.

Seymour began his professional career in a variety of local companies under supervision of experienced architects who laid the foundations of his valuable literate practice. His further step was to take a chance to come out with his own ideas and knowledge, thus having the opportunity to develop in his own individual way. Now, Seymour has a new design philosophy, trying to convince of the need for a holistic understanding of architecture, design, art tasks and connections with the real life most people have.

As an architect, artist and sculptor, Seymour is aware of the importance of artistic exploration and solutions in architecture. Working at the intersection of design and fine arts, he is doing a lot to convey those formal and aesthetic discoveries to the architecture that overflow both in him and people around him - representatives of other professions, but having similar attitude.

"I can be focused entirely on the job that can sometimes irritate my interlocutors, because I carefully take care of the definition of calculations and workflows, being completely in the creative process, sometimes losing any connection with reality and time. Sometimes I spontaneously go to travel in search of inspiration and work remotely. I get an indescribable pleasure from the connection with and perception of nature, getting inspiration from all of its masterpieces - from my favorite Caspian Sea to watching the movements of a wind, or the behavior of children. Sometimes I work without noticing that I spend at the table several days. For me, duality, passion and unpredictability is a source of creative freedom, which helps to create projects, desired and loved my customers".

While studying at the University of Architecture, he participated in the following major projects:
• The "inventory of historical buildings of Icheri Sheher - Baku Icheri Sheher" implemented by the Azerbaijan University of Architecture and Construction in collaboration with the University of Minnesota, USA, with the support of UNESCO, 2006-2007,

Khairov Chingiz

Engineer

Khairov Chingiz graduated from the University of Architecture and Construction at the Faculty of Architecture and Restoration of Monuments. He participated in various projects and competitions together withstudents of the University of Florence. He obtained his diploma with honors and diploma work was submitted to the contest,where it got 2nd place. He is distinguished by punctuality, high speed of work, delivery of the project on schedule and meticulous development of the project, detailing and submitting completed work.
 

I thought that after finishing my military service, I'll do prototyping or architecture. However, I received a proposal from a design firm. After some doubts, I decided to try myself in this area, being sure that this is a temporary phase. But to study the construction was getting more and more appealing day by day. While working on the design project, I began to go deeper into greater architecture and began to comprehend it from another side of view, in terms of the harmony of these two absolutely different, but at the same time, indispensable areas. I am inspired by the most complex architectural projects,where you need to consider all the smallest details of the design, and every single detail can change the entire project.

Zohrab Salam-zadeh

Artist

For all the period of my work and building my vision, I have realized that art can be quite different – pompous as well as minimalistic. I have always tried to understand even the kind of art I had not previously understood. I have managed to learn a lot, thanks to acquaintances, friends and teachers. I have challenged myself in different areas: in graphics, animation, painting, sculpting, mosaics, as well as contemporary art and installations. Using minimum number of materials, I have tried conveying maximum values and meanings.

In 2009 entered art college A.Azimzade behalf of the faculty of painting. In 2013 entered The Azerbaijan State Academy of Fine Arts joined the faculty of painting, specialty – painter-decorator of a Theatre He participated in several exhibitions both in youth and professional. He has also organized an exhibition as a curator and participated in various projects. Currently he is involved in a project ARTIM 2016, arranged by the company Artim and collaborates with the Theatre for Young People, working on projects. Since 2014 is a member of the Youth Network

Over time a person improves, and finds himself. Today, I know how I can demonstrate my thoughts and write down a good concept. In my opinion, people of art should always learn and think very deeply. This can help justify their thoughts and protect their creation. In fact, each stroke on a canvas is like our child. This can be discussed for hours... Speaking about inspiration, I cannot imagine my life without music, which is played all day long in my studio. Usually it is jazz: our ethno jazz as well as international music of the 40s - 50s. I love it for its energy. It is like drawing with musical instruments. Generally I'm a music lover. You can find almost any genre in my playlist. Also, I am inspired by our national culture, shape, carpet ornaments, and miniatures. I think a good artist’s hands can interpret well by changing colors and shapes, meanwhile creating something new and unique. Учавствовал в ряде выставок как в молодежных так и в профессиональных. Так же проводил выставку в качестве куратора и участвовал в различных проекта. На данный момент участвует в проекте Ярата ARTIM 2016. Сотрудничает с ТЮЗ, работая над проектами. Является членом организации Youth Network ( Gənclər şəbəkəsi) с 2014 года.
