Vivid memories of summer explored at LaSandr Art Gallery in Minsk
Over 20 works are on show, under the single theme of the warmest season.

Artist Vasily Matusevich uses bright colours and graphic lines, often depicting ships. He explains, “I love objects balanced between three worlds and I think those seeing my canvases will find that they resonate with them. Artists should paint simply and distinctly, so that their pictures interest others. My task has been simple, yet important: to give pleasure.”
Meanwhile, Valery Pesin’s works conjure up Italy as a place of tranquillity and spiritual comfort. “Each of my works is a self-portrait to some degree. I never invent my plots, being always inspired by real life. My works may seem simple-minded in conception — but that’s the whole idea. When I paint a picture, it is an extreme sensation of happiness. I give up control and my hand finishes the picture independently,” Valery explains.
Vasily Matusevich works in the field of monumental art, as well as decorative painting, tapestry, interior design and stained-glass, with works held in private collections across Sweden, Japan, Israel, Bulgaria and Ceylon.
Valery Pesin tried various professions before deciding to devote himself completely to creativity, taking part in collective exhibitions in Russia, Poland, Germany, Holland and Spain. His personal exhibitions have been organised in Belarus, Germany, Holland, Luxembourg, Poland, Russia and Sweden.
