Mammadov captures the essence of ordinary moments, portraying scenes from his global travels and his home country. Influenced by his father’s artistic legacy and the rich culture of Azerbaijan, Mammadov combines the specificity of each place with universal significance. Mammadov’s impressive technique allows him to masterfully control lines, light, and perspective, faithfully recreating landscapes from Parisian rooftops to the rustic charm of Venice and the vibrant facades of Bilbao. Water emerges as a recurring motif, symbolising life’s source and providing a serene backdrop in depictions of canals, ports, beaches, and rainfall.

Optimism emanates from Mammadov’s paintings, conveyed through bold brushstrokes and saturated colors celebrating humanity’s diversity and harmony. Encouraging viewers to find poetry in everyday moments, his art unveils the beauty of life’s simple joys, inviting us to pause and appreciate the richness of the world. Mammadov’s scenes, whether depicting fishermen on a concrete dock, a leisurely stroll through town, or bustling riverbed commerce, are windows into the everyday. His realism authentically portrays these fleeting moments, immortalizing them on canvas to tell stories that might otherwise go unnoticed. His mastery of line, light, and perspective is evident in the faithful recreations of landscapes. From the intricate Haussmannian architecture of Paris to the rustic red roofs of Venice, Mammadov provides unique perspectives, often slightly flattening aerial views for a contemporary twist.
