At the time of the event the author himself explained stylistic- vivid manner of his works  as transcendent symbolism. The artist pointed, that this is an attempt to grasp the today surprisingly complicated, interesting and full of mysteries world  by means of fine arts. The freedom of creative work anables an artist to have his/ her own rather independent  and distinctive view at the course of events and the sosiety’s development. At the same time the artist has a great responsibility, because his creative work is influencing on development and forming of a person and his/her world view. That is why Chritsian values are the scale for measuring of good and evil, of light and darkness. These values are the dominating aspect in Genadz Drazdou’s work.

Mikola Kupava`s exhibition in New York Print
Thursday, 14 June 2007

The image “http://belmuseum.org/images//opnkypava.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.On June 3rd Belarusan Museum of New York opened a personal exhibition of a famous Belarusan artist Mikola Kupava in the public hall of St. Cyril of Turau Cathedral. The leader of the Belarusan Popular Front Zianon Pazniak and leader of Belarusan Institute of Science and Art Vitaut Kipel spoke to the visitors of the exhibition. They spoke about history of art development both in Belarus and in Belarusan Diasporas abroad, greeted the artist upon the opening of his exhibition, and presented gifts to the artist. After the latter ceremonies, the artist took a lead in presenting his artwork. Mikalay Saganovich officially presented the gift to the artist on behalf of the Belarusan immigrants. The official opening procedure was completed by Siarzhyk Sokalay-Vojush, who in his turn also greeted the artist and sang the song of Belarusan rebirth.

Mikola Kupava is the artist with distinct domination of nationalistic themes in his artwork. Through his extensive creativity, the artist embeds the brightest and most influential individuals in Belarusan history and culture. It was Mikola Kupava who created the images of the Great Polatsk Duke Vseslav the Sorcerer, Duchess Ragneda, Duke Iziaslay, Saint Efrasinnia (Euphrasinne) of Polatsk, and Cyril of Turau. The artists' genius extends as far as the portrayal of Great Dukes of the Great Duchy of Lithuania, Belarusan war leaders, and, most profoundly, Belarus-independence-fighters Kastus Kalinouski and Tadeush Kasciushka. However, the artist spends the most amount of time on portrayal of brightest Belarusan authors Yakub Kolas and Yanka Kupala, who have been inspiring the artist since 1980. As a result, the public has portraits of the geniuses of Belarusan literature, the views of the countryside of Minsk, Vilnia, and Pinsk, the dearest places of the authors. The illustrations to the literature works of Kupala and Kolas is the merit of the artist. All artist's works are united by a common prevailing theme of Belarusan national idea.
