Fine art occupies a certain place in the system of religious values according to one of the emotionally-figurative statements of religious ideas. The contemporary art of Tatarstan develops in such a spiritual space, where the traditions of Tatar and Russian culture, religion and creativity have been combined and intertwined for many centuries, where two great civilizations - Muslim and Christian - intersect, where East and West are united. An example of understanding different religious worldviews is the work of one of the famous artists of the Republic of Tatarstan, a national artist of the Republic of Tatarstan, a corresponding member of the Academy of Arts of Russia, an Honored Artist of the Republic of Tatarstan Abrek Amirovich Abzgildin. We can say that Islam, Christianity, ancient mythology, Turkic paganism, Buddhism, and other forms of spiritual and creative search find their place and interpretation in his works of art.
The article is devoted to an attempt at an art criticism description and philosophical analysis of A.A. Abzgildin’s works and creation devoted to religious and mythological themes and plots, allegorically reflecting the world around and modern reality, by which the artist tries to find the answers to the eternal questions of mankind and the universe.
