Hyperrealist painter Timur Tsaku
Born in 1971 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, USSR, Tsaku graduated from the Tashkent Art School in 1987. Then, he studied in the prestigious P. P. Benkov Art Institute.
The Surrealist artist Timur Tsaku uses a “triple zero” paint brush and magnifying glass to achieve a hyper-realistic image. As a result – almost photographic representation of the people and animals depicted in his unique imagery. “When the surfaces of the panels are almost completed”, – Tsaku says, “these moody, abstracted landscapes reveal the figures that will encompass the majority of the image.”
Characterized by black and white composition, Tsaku also highlights his paintings with touches of gold paint. According to the artist, all of the characters in his works – based on figures found in the Old Testament of the Bible. Meanwhile, the majority of the figures take the form of animals. These animals are actually spiritual creatures that have manifested themselves in the shapes of dogs, cats and other beasts.

In 1991 Tsaku moved to Israel where he created a series of paintings called “The Republic of Israel”, shown at the Ashdod Museum in Israel. Tsaku’s paintings are in the permanent collections of the Israel Museum and the President’s Residence, both in Jerusalem.

Truly unique and immediately identifiable, the depicted scenes are a synthesis of whimsy and wonder, surrealism and hyper-realism. A world, where spirits take the form of dogs and women, become amorphous elongated figures. A world, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, and the real becomes surreal.

Nowadays, the portraits by Tsaku displayed in the personal collections of V.V. Putin, D.A. Medvedev, T.B. Yumashev, R.A. Kadyrov, R.G. Abdulatipov, V.A. Shamanov and many other Russian dignitaries.
