Rasilbek Estemesov is a Kazakh artist, sculptor, graphic illustrator who lives currently in Shymkent, South Kazakhstan.

He was born in 1953 and spent his childhood in a country near Tulkibas, South Kazakhstan.

He began his study of art at Almaty N. V. Gogol Art School and graduated from this school in 1975. 

His works display an interest in surrealistic automatism and he practices automatic drawing artistic style. His artistic works is done without any preparation and his hands dance automatically across the paper and create unbelievable unique masterpieces.

Rasilbek’s work is remarkable for its variety, including paintings, drawings; work with colored pens, clay and tapestries.

He believes in unison of human beings and other species in the Universe and this was visually reflected in his artistic works. His work “Law of Prosperity” can be characterized as the concept of visualization of DNA code. This concept is not to be easily understood by human beings, but Rasilbek managed to perceive and visually reflected the presence and coexistence of humans and other specious in us.

Our ancestors knew that a duality like ancient primitive animal instincts which is not accessible to our conscious memory and a relatively young human intelligence was installed in human beings. 

The legends and myths describe the ancestors and guardians of a clan or tribe as animals, plants, objects or natural phenomena.

Ancient shamanistic legends tell about the power of heaven, fire, water, earth, fantastic birds, blue she-wolves, magic horses, deer, turtles, camels, cats, snakes and much more.

In ancient times, the objects depicting the Totem Ancestors in the form of talisman were kept in every Turks tribe’s shelters. 

Probably, it was always not easy to find ways of peaceful cooperation between these two opposing internal forces – the conscious and subconscious, but it was worth living well, abundantly, protecting yourself, your loved ones from punishment for mistreating them. Ancient people believed in everything around us have consciousness, everything in nature is living thing, rational and we are all interconnected.

This respectful attitude towards reality surrounding a person is reflected in our national traditions, caring and protecting the earth, respecting elders, generosity, mutual aid, hospitality, desire for knowledge, and being aware of the interdependence of everything in the Universe. 

Modern scientific discoveries in the field of quantum physics, genetics, microbiology, neurology prove that all these traditions are reasonable, and relied on the real laws of nature. People observed life, noticed its laws, made conclusions and applied them in the form of moral and ethical standards, and religious principles.

So, Rasilbek visualizes his subconsciousness and his ancestor’s life experiences and turned them into lines, graphical fragments and recognizable symbols.
