Life and work

the Legendary Director and writer, an outstanding painter and draughtsman Rustam Khamdamov was born in Tashkent on may 24, 1944, the family fled from the dispossession of Tatar and local resident Usman Hamdamova.

His knowledge of the Russian language, and in many ways — and belonging to the world of Russian culture and art Rustam U. owes his nanny. "We lived in the Jewish quarter and across the road was the house of Kerensky, — he said in an interview. — My nanny was Russian, a former chorus girl of the Nizhny Novgorod theater, she even dubbed me quietly. She worked as a housekeeper at the Tashkent theatre, and I often sat in the Golden king's bed, saw Plisetskaya, listened to Pirogov and the Panther's in "mermaid" Dargomyzhsky".

Professional arts education Hamdamov received, but he began to paint very early age of five, and since then is engaged in different types of creativity.

even in his youth, the future artist and Director was known for a special character, it stands out from the crowd: so, according to many sources, it is not to join the Komsomol, went to study in night school. Therefore, for many, the arrival Hamdamova at the VGIK in 1964 came as a surprise. Classmate Hamdamova Irakli Kvirikadze recalled that, according to rumors in Tashkent, entering the workshop of Grigory Chukhrai was worth it parents box select Mac. However, this is just a rumor. The first independent film by Khamdamov — short film "In mountains my heart" (1967), filmed them while studying in the third year of the Institute, — was a real event in Russian cinema. According to the critic, "the picture was than-то like yeast ferments which ascended in our movie style retro. Ideas and findings of this film she boarded, taking advantage of the inaccessibility of primary source... objective world: the straw boater, lace fans, ladies 'hats and corsets, and vintage pianos and vintage bikes — is an indispensable requisite retro-стилистики — it is from here began a journey from movie to movie, replicated wholesale and retail, infinitely often ad nauseam monotonous". Officials, however, the critics did not share: the film was banned for excessive freedom and stylistic refinements, the negative was destroyed, and Khamdamov eventually graduated from VGIK with a diploma, but no diploma work is to make another independent project he just didn't trust.

the Film never reached the public, but the style and aesthetics of the paintings later influenced the work of many other Directors. So, in 1968, removing the "noble nest", Andrei Konchalovsky, "asked the manthe three best artists. Nicholas Dvigubskaya has created the image of Paris, Mikhail Romadin — estate Kalitenya, Alexander boym — estate Lavretsky. Later in the film there's a fourth artist — Rustam Khamdamov". Gorgeous costumes Hamdamova is blended in rare beauty the picturesque ensemble of the picture.

that Khamdamov draws, and not just paints, but also masterfully creates a three-dimensional and expressive images with just a few strokes, his friends and colleagues learned mostly by accident. Although, the memories Kvirikadze, while studying Hamdamov drew almost constantly. Often, these were quick sketches (one day he listened as the Kvirikadze says the design of the future scenario created an illustration for him which later became a starting point for work on the visual side of the film). Best Hamdamova managed detailed and accurate images of women, which he then used to develop the characters in his films.

after Graduating from VGIK in 1969, in 1972-1974 Khamdamov was working on his first major directorial project — feature film, "Unexpected joy" on the life of silent film star Vera Cold. The shooting went on at a rapid pace, but the painting was not completed during a regular inspection of the footage revealed that Khamdamov making a movie is not approved, and on his own script. In response to the requirement to submit for approval a written version of the new scenario, the artist moved to Tashkent to see my mother. By the way, later-то time the film was photographed by the approved first version of the script today known to the public under the name "Slave of love".

Fleeing from Moscow, Khamdamov focused on fine art. In 1970-80-х years he has engaged in painting and graphics, and also worked as a costume designer.

In 1975 in Uzbekistan Rustam Hamdamov became acquainted with Michelangelo Antonioni and Tonino Guerra, who were in the country in search of nature for future film. Knowledge was the beginning of a friendship that lasted decades and became for the artist to literally "window to Europe". Tonino Guerra recalled: "you Know how he survived?! But, despite everything, he continued to paint his tale. When I returned from Moscow in the times of my first visits to Russia, I have always carried with me the precious pictures by Rustam Khamdamov. I drove and showed them the Visconti, Fellini, Antonioni, and they were impressed with me. Now in my garden, hanging his icon and a huge mug of pears — amazing picture! He was given talent by the grace of God — gift of the artist, Director, designer. And most importantly — he is a man of deep mystery."

In Moscow Hamdamov back in the late 1980-х years, during perestroika. In 1989-м he became a Director of the international film project Anna Karamazoff. The main role in the film played by French actress Jeanne Moreau, and producermade by Serge Silberman. And again the picture did not reach the rental: from-за of disagreements with the producer of the film was arrested as an option, come down to the Cannes film festival, was not accepted by the public, from-за reactions which during the premiere Moreau left the auditorium.

After another failure Hamdamov in the early 1990-х years have left the country and went to Paris. There he worked as a designer, advising a fashion house and creating sketches, including accessories and jewelry. "I did a lot of drawing for fashion houses in Milan, Paris, new-Йорка, including shoes", — he said in an interview. This experience will subsequently impact in askinosie and simplicity of his sketches, ease of lines and colours, fine silhouettes that distinguish it from the mass of artists. Lightness, dynamism, and conciseness, however, the attention and study of the smallest details, whether it's a slipper peeks from-под hem dresses conventional Princess, or a pattern decorating the corner of her clothing, became the original card of the artist.

In 1992-1995 Rustam Khamdamov for outstanding achievement in the arts received a grant, Jacques Chirac, in the same period he was recognized as the best international artists. In 1996 Hamdamov became a laureate of "Triumph" as a filmmaker, artist and writer.

Despite advances in the field of fine arts and design, Khamdamov did not leave and work in movies. In 1995, he began working on the film-концертом "Vocal Parallels", the shooting of which was completed in 2004 (premiered in 2005). By the way, in many ways, this picture was formed and defined stage character actress Renata Litvinova. In 2004 he was in the play AP Chekhov's "the Seagull", staged in the Mossovet Theatre Andrei Konchalovsky, and in 2009 again worked with him as costume designer on theatrical staging of Chekhov's play "Uncle Vanya".
