Today we will tell you about a young designer whosethe name will soon be known to the entire design world. Why? Because Farid Rasulov is mega-talented. He creates interiors, designs furniture and even aims at clothing collections. The editor-in-chief of the portal Oksana Kashenko made an interview with the designer - At what age did you realize that you want to become an artist? - Pretty mature. There was no such thing that since childhood I was torn and dreamed of a career as a famous artist or answered the question "What do you want to become?" exactly. It was only after I graduated from the medical university that the understanding and realization came that the profession of a doctor was not for me, and I just wanted to take and change everything. By this time, I went to a friend, Faik Ahmed, to his art studio, where talented modern young artists gathered, where a completely different atmosphere was present, everything was completely different: fun, interesting, informative. It was this atmosphere of the art workshop, where I was surrounded by interesting people, absorbed in art and their different worldview, that prompted me to reconsider my future. That's how I wanted to change everything and become an artist. - What education do you have? - Medical. I am an ophthalmologist with honors, which I sometimes forget! - What influenced you the most asartist? - First, a very strong desire to create and be in a creative environment. Creativity is always something new, and everything new, in turn, is movement and development. As a person who does not know how to stand in one place, I strove for just this kind of activity. The profession of a doctor dictated its own. So I slipped away. Secondly, friends who were not afraid of experiments and did interesting work. I learned from them, consulted with them and so moved forward. The exhibitions in which the artist participates also have a great influence, it is always a new communication, the experience of other people, a completely different vision of the world and, accordingly, a different art. - How did you get started in industrial design?- By chance. A few years ago, when I was just starting my career as an artist, I joined my fellow artists who were moonlighting as an apartment designer at the time. Since then I have acquired some skills related to furniture and accessories, learned to work in 3D and with the program of all Autocad designers. Over time, the profession of an artist began to generate some income, and I left design. A few years later, at the 55th Venice Biennale, where I represented Azerbaijan with a carpet room, I again became interested in design. - Tell us about the exposition for the Venetianbiennale. - The work consisted of a room, all elements and accessories of which were completely covered with carpet ornaments. The pavilion of Azerbaijan was in an accessible place, which facilitated a large flow of people and aroused the same great interest. They wrote many articles about my work, talked and discussed a lot, found out after some time when I told people. In general, everything was successful. - Tell us about your brand of furniture.- First of all, I would like to note that the creation of CHELEBI Furniture and Décor would not have been possible without the support of my friend, the brilliant artist Aida Makhmudova. We came up with the style and direction together. It was the joint investment of energy and strength that led to the fact that we were able to create such a brand. Further, the work was carried out by a professional team consisting of General Manager Simon Ahmed, creative director Orhan Huseynov and me. We all worked hard and solved the tasks that we set ourselves: we went and found factories, negotiated, signed contracts and slept like babies from fatigue. This lasted for two years. The preparation was at a good level. It was difficult, but it's fun and interesting when it's difficult! - What is the main thing for you, where does the idea come from?ornaments, how would you like to develop this direction? - The main thing in the creation of CHELEBI Furniture and Décor furniture and accessories is the preservation of the national color, the use of traditional ornaments and forms. But all this should be combined with a modern direction and design trends. We have a difficult task, but we are coping with it. Ornaments play a special role in the creation of furniture and accessories: these are interpretations of the Sheki shebeke, Guba zeishur and, of course, the Karabakh chelebi, after which the brand was named. It is not for nothing that I mentioned the interpretation of the ornaments, since they change - color, shape - but the foundation remains. - Tell us about your clothing collection.- I have nothing to tell yet, since I have not presented a personalized collection of clothes, there are only a few costumes that I have sewn for myself. As standard as it sounds, I have very little time to implement all the ideas that come to mind. The profession of an artist requires a lot of energy. I can compare her with a small child who develops, but does not grow physically, always remaining mobile and demanding attention. The slightest hack at work leads to imbalance. Sometimes CHELEBI pulls me away from everything else, but you must always keep balance and move on. - What style of interior is closest to you? - Simple white color, wood, comfortable upholstered furniture, interesting accessories, large windows and all the kindest that can be. - What is the interior of your own house?- I still live with my parents, this is a semi-Soviet interior with an Azerbaijani accent. Everything is very standard and practical, no experiments. I can't wait to start doing interior design in my own home in the near future. I think there will be a lot of CHELEBI stuff.
