Artwork Description

The Russian countryside is full of poetry and beauty. This series of artworks is devoted to our childhood spent in a remote village amid the taiga. We recall endless forests, old wooden houses, and the familiar corners of our native land. These memories evoke the quiet sadness of our past childhood. The illustrations brim contemplatively with beautiful nature and inhabitants of this land. The time between autumn and winter captures well the mood of a man sadly remembering the time gone by.
