I recommend paintings of Eugene Pack, an artist from Uzbekistan
I served in Uzbekistan 2002-2004. This part of the world used to be a center of the Orient culture with Samarkand and Bukhara being capitals of the Persian and Timur empires. The Uzbek art has a high level; since the air is so clean and vapor-free that colors look very genuine and fresh. I went to many exhibitions.
Among young Uzbek artists I came to value Mr. Eugene Pack, an ethnic Korean. In Uzbekistan about 300 thousand Koreans still live; they used to flee their native land under Japanese rule.
Since my Uzbek years a lot of time has passed, and only now I finally post his works on my blog. Please enjoy them.
