The Honored Artist Aghasaleh Nuriyev died

The honored artist Aghasaleh Nuriyev died on February 23 at the age of 83. Aghasaleh Mammadhuseyin oghlu Nuriyev was born on March 28, 1940, in Baku. He completed his studies at the Azim Azimzadeh State Art College in 1962 and the Kyiv State Art Institute in 1973 as a muralist. In 1976, he was elected as a member of the Union of Artists of the USSR, and his artworks were exhibited in Russia, Germany, Turkiye, and our country.

The artist's artwork, "Musicians" was awarded a medal at the Exhibition of National Economic Achievements in Moscow in 1976 (the artistic design of the "Inshaatchilar" metro station).

Aghasaleh Nuriyev was granted the honorary title of "Honored Artist" in 2006. His last solo exhibition, titled "The World of Luminous Art," took place at the Heydar Aliyev Center in 2022.
