It was during that time that he was moved to create his 2012 series “Canadian Autumn”, capturing the colours and natural character of Canada. For Bayramov, the bright colours and beauty of the series represented Canada’s breath-taking nature, strong multiculturalism, and the spirit of tolerance and liberty. The series that he created was a tribute to the beautiful country that had been so welcoming to him.
When Bayramov was living in Canada, his studio was on Greengate Road. The sketches and paintings from Greengate brought an entire community together. Each neighbour recognised their respective house, and for most it brought back memories of a sweet Turkmen man who spent his days on the hot pavement lovingly capturing his surroundings.
Some had lived on Greengate for twenty years or more and had not once met a neighbor. Bayramov and his sketches became the unifying factor in his community even after his passing, welcoming a wide array of cultural backgrounds, races, and creeds.
After Bayramov’s passing, his daughter and her family moved to the house where he had studio in while he stayed in Canada. During her family’s move-in, a Swiss woman who had been living on Greengate for a long period of time approached Bayramov's daughter and stated how excited she was to see the artist again. She did not know that Bayramov had passed away and was saddened by the news. Learning how great of an impact her father had made during his visit, the artist's daughter decided to invite the neighbours to show the work he had created.
