Haji-Murad Alikhanov's painting system includes many styles and trends that have already become a classic heritage in the world visual culture. They are embedded in the fusion of his experiences and in the texture of his painting. The art of El Greco and Matisse, Vrubel and Miro, Kandinsky, the school of oriental miniature had a strong influence on the artist's work.
