Exhibition of November 2013


«The Talisman»

30.10.2013 - 23.11.2013

I, Andrey Smirnov was born in 1960.
I was born with the mission to be an artist, and I always felt it, but never attached any importance to this because I thought that all men
are like that.
Tried several other professions, it was difficult.
Then decided I should draw.
I felt a lightness.
I feel like a happy man, because I do what I get easily, that I love.
It's a blessing - to accept God's gift with gratitude and joy, because someone likes it and it is very necessary for someone.
Many are called, few are chosen.
I would like to be chosen.
There were many exhibitions, because I was lucky, but do not think that it is right to proud of my good fortune.
I wish myself to create a nice thing, such that they said: "Who made such charm?"
I would have been standing nearby, my eyes downcast, and would say that I do not know.
And this is true.
I do not know who I am.
And I would like to surprise myself one day.
I would like to be earnest to look at the important with smile.
It turns out - the light from inside and a smile outside.
I cannot draw light, but know how to draw a smile.
