The Earth and Sky exhibition at the National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History of Moldova is showing landscapes inspired by the beauty of Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus. At the launch, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to Moldova, H.E. Mr. Vyacheslav Osipenko, congratulated Mr. Ignatenko on the opening of another personal exhibition. The Ambassador emphasised that Mr. Ignatenko’s creativity has always been closely connected with Belarus and is well known in his motherland and abroad, as he has enjoyed about 20 personal exhibitions in Chisinau, Tiraspol, Odessa and Minsk.
According to the Ambassador, Mr. Ignatenko’s paintings affirm that art transcends borders and nationality. Although born in Belarus, he has been living in Moldova for many years, promoting the spiritual closeness of our two countries through his creativity. He studied in Minsk but has been living and working in Moldova since 1983 and is a member of the Union of Artists of Moldova.
