Such is the artistic mantra of Aisulu N. (Ais). Born in Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan, in 1982, she says that bringing happiness to viewers and collectors of her work is the reason she puts paint to canvas.
Ais studied at SMFA at Tufts University in Boston, where she completed a post-baccalaureate program in fine arts. Her early pictures were in an abstract manner, but she has since established herself as one of the leading figurative painters. Executed in a faux naïf style, her typical works are colourful scenes, depicting individuals or couples in understatedly elegant clothes. She says that her subjects aren’t actual people, so much as a mixture of emotions, memories and values evoked in the act of painting. Often prominent in that mixture is tenderness: shown both by the painter towards her figures and, in the case of twin subjects, between each other.
