For already two decades the people of Kazakhstan are familiar with the creative art of A. Kazgulov. The painter, who was born and grew up at the coast of the Aral Sea, could not be indifferent to the problem of the century-dying sea. Aral is the eternal epos. The canvases of Kazgulov warn that the consciousness of the contemporaries will not become like the drying Aral. His works are similar to the steppe mirages. In them are the memoirs of the past and the dreams of the future. The artist's cult ritual is the worship to the great road of Turkic. From here start his endless caravans, the eternal movement, and the eternal return back to place. "The artist's roads are short in general if not to extend it by the constant search" - a rule which the painter trusts.
Alpysbai Kazgulov paints his pictures in the stylistics of abstractionism and surrealism. "Cataclysm, excess, shock or an unprecedented event are the subjects on which the drama of each of my canvases was built. If I deceive a viewer's sight, it is as much deceptive as the reality..."
