CONTEMPORARY ART CODE

Another is the ability to have many hands . collections in different cities of the world : Paris , New York , London , Berlin , Tokyo ... The last personal exhibition in Paris was held next to the Louvre , in the gallery on the opposite bank of the Seine , and after the gallery , we went there . Probably , the French experience has become the most important . To bring my work to Paris , I spent all money that I had and did not have . And this is not just one time . Sometimes I came there alone , did not know the language and understand nothing , looked for help , got lost , but found . With 3-4 bags and suitcases with heavy bronze sculptures , I got to the right place . It was difficult . But the dream helped me .
My dream is to exhibit works ( sculptures , carpets ) in the Metropolitan Museum in New York , the Louvre , the Rodin Museum , the London National Gallery , the Victoria and Albert Museum . In general , it would be great to have sculptures exhibited at the International Space Station .

- It is mystery and depth , the ability to see future and to discover new worlds . Auguste Rodin said : “ To create not only on the surface , but also in depth ”. The main thing in art is its strength .
