Agil Abdullayev was born and raised in Baku, Azerbaijan. Their journey as an artist started from a cliché place of loneliness and depression in the first year of Computer Engineering at the age of 18, so they began to make paintings about love and their lovers, or loneliness as it would happen after they left them. Four years later, Abdullayev moved to Nottingham. In getting used to England, they became more interested in representations of identity, culture and politics. “…I never knew that I am allowed to make a social commentary about my country.”
