Rinat Baibekov (Tatar: Ринат Байбәков, born 1962, Kazan, Russia) comes from a family of artists of Tartar ancestry. He began sketching and painting at a very young age, attending full-time art courses alongside primary school.

The artist Rinat Baibekov

Baibekov studied art at the Kazan Art College, followed by the Kharkov Academy of Fine Art, where he majored in Public Art.

After living and working as an artist in St. Petersburg until 1990, Baibekov moved to Toronto, Canada. He returned to Europe in 1998, re-locating to the United Kingdom where he currently lives and works.[1]

Artist’s statement[edit]

My dialogue with the world is a visual one. The universe is already created for us with all its beauty and wonders. As a visual artist I want to reveal and interpret the inter-relationships between all that is already there yet through my eyes. Humans and animals, plants and music, philosophy and myth are all inter-relationships I illustrate in my work.[2]

Utilising knowledge and experience, one can masterfully implement the rules of composition, proportion, colour, tone, different techniques, effects, style to be considered a professional artist, yet in the end remain but only a craftsman, of which there are many.To become a Creator - Artist in the bigger sense one must reach for something grander,beautiful new, something I am trying to do to this day."

I take my inspiration from ancients, philosophies, theological ideas, all arts, history and people, as well as the grand teacher itself Nature. My father, also an artist, taught me that If you do not have a teacher, go to Mother Nature.[3]

Overview[edit]

Working predominately in the medium of acrylic paint, Baibekov's art is loosely associated with Surrealist art; his wide and varied work includes portraiture.
