Inom Mansurov was born in Kokand, or “City of Winds,” on the crossroads of the trade routes in Uzbekistan, former eastern Soviet Union. Known for the Palace of Khudayar Khan, one of the most opulent in Central Asia; the Jummi Mosque holding 10,000 worshippers; 9 colleges, 5 musical schools, 1 theater, and 7 museums, Kokand greatly influenced Mansurov with its multi-faceted and vibrant cultural legacy. He attended the Kokand State School of the Arts from 1982 to 1986, moving in 1988 to St. Petersburg, a center of Russian artistic life. In 1988 he was accepted to study at the prestigious Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory of Art under Professor Suvorov, where he entered and won First Place of the joint Moscow Ballet-St Petersburg State Conservatory of Art’s inaugural 2011 Visual Art Contest.
