Bakhodir Jalal was born in 1948 in Tashkent the capital of Uzbekistan. From 1968 to 1974, he studied at the St. Petersburg's Repin Institute of Painting, one of the oldest and most respected art institutions in Russia. He was in St. Petersburg during the aftermath of the famous Thaw of the sixties that initiated the transformation of Soviet society.

The artistic intelligentsia at that time was rethinking the Russian avantgarde aesthetic methodologies, contemplating its future and experimenting with new, synthetic art practices.

Bakhodir Jalal uses colour and the symbolic language of lines and fluid forms to enquire into abstract art. Jalal's almost astrological figurations, evoking a sense of freedom, eroticism and mystery. The principles of Jalal follow in the path of the Malevitchian pursuit of a 'non-objective' painting. On another hand, his visual language is rooted locally within Central Asia and gets its inspiration in a form of Oriental mysticism which cast the material world as an illusory fiction.
