1st Place Bio:

I was born in a small closed military town where missiles with nuclear warheads were stored in the USSR. I devoted my whole life to drawing and painting. I really enjoy living in the forest and I believe that all people are part of nature. Painting brings me great pleasure. I want my work to bring joy to the event, make people smile and think.

I am a participant of many international exhibitions. My work is available in collections in over 20 countries. https://artalexmikhalchyk.com/
