CASPIA CONTEMPORARY and AWA UK are proud to present the art exhibition ‘Symphony of Caspian Treasures’ in partnership with the Embassy of Azerbaijan in London,
This exhibition represents five outstanding artists from Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan whose careers and artistic styles are unique and distinctive, yet they all represent the story of their region with its customs, traditions, colors and emotions.
