This Turkoman painter who was born in Gonbad-Kavous, where people use a lot of red color because he said they mainly live on a plain, has a most intriguing and interesting way of blending modernity and tradition. He said that he is very dedicated to his tribe and country and his work is a representation of his affiliation and affection.
In his work he brings out his culture and tradition which like Turkeman carpets are abstract. In an interview he mentioned that “People in my paintings are waiting for God” and when one looks at his work, with people shaped in curved forms, mostly women, standing up; one begins to see what he means. In the same interview he says that he creates everything in a new form and technique and through his work he tries to communicate with the viewer.

I loved the forms and the colors of Mr. Tatari’s work and I felt touched by his shy abstract colorful style and his feral and intense sense with which he communicates and reaches out to his audience.
I have a few pictures here for you to draw your own judgment.
