«Moscow Stories» – a collective project of two professional creative art unions – TSHR and TSHDPI, organically born among artists for whom the Russian capital – not just a noisy multi-millionaire, impressive in its scope: the most complex transport facilities, huge green parks and architectural sights, but a native, beloved city where you want to live, create and whose beauty you want to sing on your canvases.
“Cultural life is in full swing in the capital, exhibitions are constantly opening in various galleries, at major art fairs, and in museums. And in this artistic whirlwind, no, no, and even a touching picture flickers, quietly telling about Moscow… But Moscow has a lot of stories.
