Victor Tikhonov’s 2x3m canvas is installed in the museum lobby, in front of the entrance door, with brushes and paints laid out for anyone wishing to try their hand. He is confident that we all have an artistic side. Several hundred people from around the world and from all walks of life have already added their contributions to the masterpiece. The experiment allows visitors to explore how colours can be created, mixing shades like ancient alchemists to find their own unique palette.
