Chechen painter Seda Gubacheva was born in June of 1971 in Chechnya. She has lived and worked in Belgium since 2005.
Her artistic approach consists of translating experienced emotions and feelings that she expresses through characters. Two wars in Chechnya from 1994-1996 and in 1999 had a profound effect on her views of humanity, mankind, and the world. Her views of the world, social events and politics are now changed. Having lived with an acute sensitivity of the events in these wars, she carries with her very strong images which have left marks on her memory. Ten years after her graduation, she uses the brush to express, at first cautiously, the profound grief she experienced after the wars. It allowed her to find a way to open the door to let out emotions which are deeply hidden. Emotions, feelings, moments of life events experienced… Images float to the surface of her memory and onto the canvas.
Her viewpoint is peaceful and sensible in regard to the events of the past. She has emotional and universal feelings about the wars, violence, and the power of force and destruction of human lives for political interests.
