Artist Azamat Dzhanaliev, who previously created a portrait of the ex-president Almazbek Atambayev and demanded money for it, put up for sale a portrait of the current head of Kyrgyzstan, Sooronbai Jeenbekov. He told on Facebook.
According to the artist, he had financial problems, so he decided to sell the portrait.
Azamat Dzhanaliev put up the portrait of the President Sooronbai Jeenbekov for sale not for the first time. He put up his work for an auction on May 9 with the starting price $ 5,000. The portrait is made of threads and nails and weighs 11 kilograms. The head of the state is depicted in ak-kalpak.
Earlier, Azamat Dzhanaliev tried to sell the portrait of Almazbek Atambayev. However, the SDPK stated that initially the artist presented his work and was not going to ask money for it. He also submitted an application to the SCNS against the former adviser to the ex-president of Kyrgyzstan, Ikramzhan Ilymyanov, and later withdrew the application. But he did not return the money ($ 2,500), which the Social Democrats paid him for the portrait of the ex-president.
