A large number of manual operations as well as expensive consumables (jewelry wax, investment powder, alloys and consumables for the subsequent processing of finished works of art) are used. On each sculpture there is an author’s stamp and serial number of the work (but no more than 8 works).
«What a very good and skillfully executed exhibition. This is a master’s work that develops every year and is not afraid to change directions and styles. There is this feeling that Igor’s mind is full of many creative thoughts and ideas. His school – Krasnoyarsk State Institute of Arts – is one of the best in the region. The institution is a major arts center, featuring very capable teachers with excellent teaching and management skills. In my opinion, Igor has made a very powerful leap. However, this is not the limit to the huge creative potential of this young sculptor.»
«First of all, I am happy for the author of this exhibition and I am impressed. Every exhibition has its own features. The exhibition stands out thanks to the abundance of work carried out, the very high technical level of execution and a wide variety of styles. Such exhibition is surely needed by the sculptor because it is his first opportunity to listen to the opinion of his colleagues and viewers, and see himself from the outside. The art of sculpture requires solid and deep-laid professional skills, because unlike in painting, it takes a much longer time to master all the intricacies involved in the art. Igor is 39 years old and this is a very young age for an artist. So a long and creative future lies ahead for this sculptor. On this his important day, let me most warmly congratulate him!»
