THE BLESSING YURT

ALTYNAI OSMOEVA Multimedia Artist In her work, creating new, often experimental forms, Altynai combines authentic textiles, fashion, graphics, performance, installation, sculpture, photography, light, color, sound and video. Nomadic culture, philosophy and aesthetics are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the artist. Freedom personifying nomadic women, horses and Kyrgyz taigans are often the subject of her muse and work. Altynai graduated with honors from the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, situated in London, where she interned at the world famous fashion houses helmed by Alexander McQueen and Erdem Mariouglou.
