As the summer has come to an end, so has my solo exhibition in the beautiful garden of Galerie Margareta Friesen in Dresden, Germany.

I am a wanderer. Kiev - Florence - Warsaw - Berlin ... the wind keeps blowing and my journey continues. But before I move on to the next location, I’d like to mention how I got to the current stopover and share some of my experiences in the vibrant city of Berlin.

Bronze pieces by Donatello, Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore and other great sculptors of the past are still captivating the imagination of a modern viewer. Prominent contemporary sculptors like Brian Booth Craig, Coderch & Malavia and Grzegorz Gwiazda follow in the footsteps of their legendary predecessors in creating beautiful works that will be appreciated for centuries to come. And while we don’t cease to admire the ingenious compositions and intricate modelling, not many viewers today...
