Russia, the incredible trip
15 artists invited by the ministry of culture in Moscow as part of a european cultural project. The trip comprised of visits in Moscow & St Petersburg, culminating with each participant painting an image representing "The image of Russia" for a collective show. Realistically, we had only 3 days to resolve a painting from scratch, after having been dragged around different places to "experience" Russia. So not much hope to get anything decent finished. But to see a selection of Russian old masters, see my other russian blog.
Visit of an Art Academy, on the outskirts of Moscow. Extensive video presenting the school in Russian here.
