Thanks great creativity and extraordinary talent to awaking aspirations and creativity of young people, Alexey is the “heart” of our open for public, community-spirited art-symposia. He believes that art education from an early age and creative expression are very important for the formation of a harmonious personality, and for more than 40 years infects hundreds of young people with a love of creativity.
Why I love art-projects of Machaon?
The artist does not like to be limited. He needs complete freedom. When I come to remote villages, I feel this freedom as well as a huge surge of energy. Here, long-forgotten ideas are revived in my head. And I do not get tired even when working for long periods of time. And the friendly competition with the other artists during the symposia is also important.
