Museib Amirov was born in Baku in 1963. In 1979 he graduated from the Azerbaijan State Art Technical School. A. Azimzade, in 1987 - Azerbaijan State University of Arts and Culture. M.A. Aliyev. Since 1996, a member of the Union of Artists of Azerbaijan.
The creative journey of Museib Amirov began at a time when masters working at the origins of the Absheron school of painting were working in the republic: Rasim Babayev, Senan Gurbanov, Kyamal Ahmed, Ashraf Murad, Javad Mirjavadov, Gennady Brizhatyuk. These artists he considers his mentors. Undoubtedly, an important role in the formation of the personality was played by the father - the talented painter Arif Amirov, who exhibited much less frequently than he would like, since the nude female nature in his paintings was unacceptable for Soviet censors sensuality. Now we can talk about the Amirov dynasty - his son Arif and daughter Aysel convincingly declare themselves interesting conceptual projects.
In the paintings and graphic works of Museib Amirov - both large, large-scale and chamber - reflects the world of the artist, complex and multidimensional. In this world there is a place for both lyrical memories of childhood, a nostalgic transparent melody, and emotional experiences associated with contemporary reality. Having absorbed the ideas of European artists of different epochs, from the Renaissance to the Russian avant-garde, American painters, as well as the masters of the Absheron school, Museib found his own language, in his own way interpreting relevant topics and eternal themes of art that are close to him.
M. Amirov often depicts Absheron, bringing the image to perfect purity, creating clear, concise, as a rule, deserted compositions in which the bright sun turns buildings, household objects and children’s toys into almost abstract objects. Another incarnation of Amirov’s painting is the reality of today’s Baku, a dynamic modern metropolis. In this world, on the contrary, there is no harmony and silence, it contrasts sharply with the desert Absheron landscapes with its feverish rhythm of repetitive, crushing forms. The heated bodies on the beach, the figures of people, the contours of the machines turn into an inseparable mass, almost ornamentally filling the surface of the canvas. The artist himself appears detachedly gazing at this restless world.
“Painting is a search for truth, and the artist is its conductor, catalyst, a kind of stalker,” says Museib Amirov.
To do art seriously is to be a bit of a philosopher. Museib Amirov, as a true intellectual, is prone to constant reflection and self-analysis. To this day, sometimes, crossing the threshold of a workshop, he feels like a newcomer, shy in front of a white canvas, but experience says that after a few hours of patient work, he may be lucky to experience what is called inspiration in the language of an ordinary person, but in fact is the result the artist’s struggle with himself, his own insecurity, fatigue.
Among the largest international projects of recent years, in which Museib Amirov participated, is a series of traveling exhibitions Fly to Baku; International Art Exhibition, Luxembourg (2003); international exhibition Grands et jeunes d’aujourd’hui, Espace Auteuil, Paris (2003); exhibition “Baku - Paris. 20 Artists, Orangeri de Senat, Paris (2004); Premier Agency, Istanbul, Turkey (2004); "Exhibition of Contemporary Artists of Azerbaijan", IMF Gallery, Washington (2004); Berlin-Baku, GmbH Gallery, Berlin (2007); "Exhibition of Artists of Azerbaijan", Seoul (2011).
