In this February is 20th aniversary of my and Irina Baldano’s project Two Faces Of Buddhistic Moscow. It was exhibited twice: in Moscow and in Budapest.
1997 was year of our fruitful collaboration. I was impressed by plastic of Irina’s paintings from first sight. In her work was present archaism, but archaism natural and vivid. After our first project, inspired by Irina’s art, I created the clothing collection Mongolia. Irina helped me making trimming with cord and applications for caps. When the collection was ready, fashion-show has been included in the program of the festival La Nouvelle Asie in the Tretiy Put (Third Way) club in Moscow. Irina did big part of organizing work for this festival and was one of the participants.
In 2016 Irina passed away and now I publish article Two Faces Of Buddhistic Moscow from our booklet as tribute to her memory…
