Feruz Temirov was born in Bukhara, one of the ancient cities of Uzbekistan. Bukhara is famous for its ancient monuments, for great scientists and scholars and for artisans. Feruz is proud to live and work in this historical city, and is inspired by this environment.
The teaching of history, literature and music had a secure place in his family. Advised by his father Feruz applied for a place at the Department of Fine Arts, Faculty of Music and Fine Arts at Bukhara State University. He selected the art of miniature because of its connection with history and literature. After graduating he taught miniature for eight years at his faculty, where he also explored science and developed his practical skills.
He deepened his knowledge of the great historians and writers: Firdavsi, Omar Khayyam, Nizami, A. Navoi and Sh. A. Yazdi; the well-known hadith scholar Ibn Sina (Avicenna); and famous artists such as K.Bekhzod, M. Muzahhib. In particular he admired the miniature schools of the Middle Ages from Iran, Herat and Bukhara. Feruz taught himself by copying from them and their contemporaries, developing and refining his skills of drawing trees, flowers, animals and buildings in minute detail.
In his current compositions traditional themes are enriched through new topics and images: the caravan, symbolising the Great Silk Road, portraits of famous scientists and travellers of the past, the Tree of Life, lovers, polo and hunting scenes. His ambition is to delight the art lovers of today and hopefully those of future generations.
