Incredibly talented Uzbek textile designer, Dilyara Kaipova, took Tashkent's inaugural International Applied Arts Festival by storm.

Two large spaces in the Art Gallery of Uzbekistan (NBU) are dedicated to her textile pieces.

These rooms have been consistently packed with viewers and Tashkent social media is a-buzz with commentary on Kaipova's work.

The pieces include new work from her "Soft Life" project.

Additionally, some of the pieces exhibited at the 2016 International Exhibition of Contemporary Art in Tashkent, depicting Mickey Mouse, Batman, Darth Vader and other symbols of consumer culture are displayed.
