“This is the second such project, for the first time it took place last year, but it was limited on the topic of nature and animals. There were no images of people at all, so this year we decided to expand the theme of the “Living Arctic”. The tradition of discovering new names and inviting young artists has remained,” said Olga Skorikova, Chairman of the Board of the regional branch of the Union of Artists of Yakutia.
Due to the different stylistic preferences of the participants, an exposition formed from works of art of different directions turned out.

Therefore, using the same materials, but relying on their personal experience and skill, they create completely different works.
