The paintings of this series are devoted to Indian culture and its deities. Being Russian by birth and confession, from my first time in India I realized that it was the Homeland of my heart. The beauty of nature, people, and culture strikes and overwhelms me. Flavors, music, burning taste of its spices, the beauty of the temples and customs. So much love and joy in these people. And of course, this world of bright colors and stunning images is extremely attractive for me as an artist. I will be glad to share the delight of my meeting with my second Homeland—India.
