“Nicholas Roerich”. 2019, fireclay.

The Russian artist, mystic philosopher, writer, traveler, archaeologist, public figure inspired millions – through art he paved the way for higher knowledge. Culture, according to N.K. Roerich (1874-1947), is associated with the problems of the cosmic evolution of mankind. “Culture rests on Beauty and Knowledge,” he wrote. And he repeated the well-known phrase of Dostoevsky with a slight amendment: “Awareness of Beauty will save the world.” “Art will unite humanity. Art is indivisible. Art has many facets, but, nevertheless, it is one. Art is a phenomenon of the coming synthesis. Art is for everyone. ”
