. Wherever we meet with works Yunusov - in his studio or spacious halls of the museum - has always found them concentrates epic action, achieved by intense burning colors and symbols of silent Deisis
. Before us is built a long series of swirling darkness and shrouded in thick shadows of figures eyed melancholy oriental women in red and brown robes, national. Even more static, and excluded from the madding crowd figures and calm faces of men. And next to those and other, or their shoulders often appear mysterious mythical creatures, whose ancient Muslim origin issue horns or wings of unknown real world of bulls and birds. Their appearance on the canvas in the most ordinary scenes of patriarchal life seems as natural as the emergence of domestic animals in fenced backyards of the old stone fences Amiradzhana. In principle, Yunusov explicitly configured to archaic, that Pushkin called "respect for the tradition". Hence his penchant for eternal image categories and tested symbolic systems.

. "I like artists who can contradict himself," - said inclined to introspection artist
. And of course we can apply this statement to his own creativity, which does not contain a trend towards self-preservation. An example of this - the new treatment of the artist to various graphic techniques, whether colored pastel (panda), an ordinary pencil drawing or drawings of the pen in a small release diaries.
. But, no matter how successful individual graphic series Yunusov, his main passion - painting
. It was her subordinate all search sketches and constant daily observation, . it is about her mysterious laws reflects the artist, . looking at the pictures of the great masters of the past and his outstanding contemporaries, . repeating to himself: "Painting, . painting ... ",
