Roman Nogin – The Gallery of Eastern European Artists 2018
Laden with rich, vibrant colors and intricate expression, audiences will immediately feel the intensity and passionate lure of Nogin’s art.

Volodymyr Nosan – The Gallery of Eastern European Artists 2017
We can perceive in Nosan’s artwork, the folk life of Ukraine and their positive attitude towards life.

Bach’s music is infused with a pious and ardent quality—whenever I listen to his music, I always indulge in the bliss and elation religion imparts to the soul. On multiple occasions, Cen Long’s artwork has reminded me of such experiences.
