Gunduz Aghayev is a brilliant cartoonist from Azerbaijan who is not afraid to raise awareness about some of the biggest issues in the world. His artwork depicts modern problems like social media addiction or mindless consumption of trashy television.

He also puts a strong emphasis on political art and conflicts around the world.
In 1998-2002 he studied in Azerbaijan State Painters’ Academy. His first exhibition was held in 2004. The second exhibition of his works was held in Baku Muesum Center. His exhibitions were held outside of the country, as well. He took part in exhibitions held in Russia (2008), Turkey (2011) as well as “Friendship” exhibition held by the French embassy in 2002 and international artistry exhibition held in Turkmenistan in 2013. Also, he participated in the “Art for democracy” project. As a protest against injustice in his country he turned to cartoon genre and faced strong pressure; he was sacked of all projects. After constant pressure, in 2014 he left Azerbaijan.
