Sergei Smetankin's "imagination" is confusing

Sometimes you come to the exhibition and at first glance you are captivated by feelings. Something persistently enters your soul and a kind of communication with the author begins. It happened at the exhibition "Imagination", which was arranged by a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine Serhiy Smetankin.

The retrospective exhibition had its artistic face, which showed that the author has a natural creative vision, successfully places emphasis and creates an oasis of beauty full of life-giving energy. By the way, S. Smetankin entered the Ukrainian record book as an artist who simultaneously presented an exhibition of his own 190 works.
