Art Center.

Discover the richness and the diversity of Slavic Cultures through the

hand-made craft of famous artists from Belarus, Ukraine, Poland and


JULIA TSELKOVA a unique artist who knits and embroiders the

North! She draws real paintings with a needle and threads on mittens.

Born in Belarus, but moved to Murmansk – a Russian city located

beyond the Arctic Circle , Julia is inspired by Northern landscapes,

fairytales and Russian folklore, Universe and the World of Little Prince

– stories come to life on unique mittens that will not only warm your

hands but warm your heart!

EVGENIY RUSINOV is also from Siberia, Russia. Since childhood, he

was passionate about carving and today he is a famous artists who

creates jewelry out of deer horns. Every year deer dump their horns

and Evgeniy explores Siberian forests and turn them into brooches or

other jewelry accessories. Once he was lucky to find real Bear tooth

and now we have it in our collection of accessories.

ALINA BIKUSHEVA from Kazan, the Capital of Tatarstan, creates

unique Bereguini Dolls – amulets coming from Vedic Traditions.

The amulet is a materialization of what a person strives for: energy

protection, desired destiny, harmony in the family and in the soul,

meeting with a loved one, life in love, continuation of the Family,

realization of spiritual goals and destiny.

Dolls are not sewn! They are made with unique seemless technology,

they are not pricked with a needle! Every detail of the image, clothes,

objects in the hands - everything carries an energy charge, everything

is done manually. Embroidery, woven belts, knitted accessories, 

ceramic pots are the work of the Master, 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗰
