People in the works of Irik Rashidovich Musin are often shown in a contradictory light; the images tend to be unambiguous to interpret. They reflect soul searching, doubts, experiences, and attempts to find one's place in the universe.
"My work is inextricably linked with the inner world of a person. There is both the divine and the other side to a human; both the striving for beauty, for greatness on the one hand, and the destructive force, fear of the inevitable that generate anger and egocentrism on the other. In my works, I try to convey emotions and deep feelings, and color helps me to achieve my goal "
