To create his distinctive art, Ormonali Idirisov draws inspiration from his childhood in the southern region of Osh, Kyrgyz Republic. Born in 1959, he was greatly influenced by the mix of ancient Eastern and modern Western buildings and lifestyles. This strong link between modernity and antiquity was further ingrained when he attended the Russian Academy of Industrial Art in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Upon graduation in 1990, he began teaching at the Kyrgyz State Art College and displaying his art in local and international exhibitions. His works can be found in private collections in Japan, USA, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Turkey, South Korea, Israel, India, Russia, and throughout Central Asia.

Ormonali's style has been called an original blend of realism and abstract. He plays with Eastern and European concepts and intertwines the new with the old. He is a member of the Painters' Union of the Kyrgyz Republic.
