Part of paintings is original graphic comments of the works of such classical authors as Vladimir Nabokov, Ivan Bunin, Stefan Zweig and James Fenimore Cooper. The artist referred to creative work of the contemporary writers: Andrei Makarevich and Alexandr Vasilev. The exhibition is of particular interest for the visitors with children.

A lot of works of the artist will be exhibited for the first time.
Galina Zinko creates her paintings using a unique technique called linocut. This is a method of engraving on linoleum that allows creating huge pictures. Moreover, the illustrator uses watercolor, and computer graphics helps her to paint fine details.
It is difficult to limit the works of Galina Zinko by a certain artistic style. Many people believe that her illustrations are drawn towards surrealism.
The exhibition will be open for 10 days until January 19. The entrance is free of charge.
