    "YOU SHOULD "CHEKANUTSIA" (GO CRAZY)". Alexey CHEKANOV (LEKA). Fullcolor graphics
    "YOU SHOULD "CHEKANUTSIA" (GO CRAZY)". Alexey CHEKANOV (LEKA). Fullcolor graphics
    In the mid-eighties, artist Alexei Chekanov - Leka became a prominent representative of the unofficial art movement in Siberia, a member of a group of young artists, around which was formed a new understanding of contemporary art, and a participant in iconic exhibitions. Today Chekanov is a stand-alone figure in the fine arts of Barnaul. The artist has always had a surprisingly original and creative way of thinking, which he has miraculously maintained to this day. His colour graphics are made in the style of sketches and notes, seasoned with the "Chekanovsky" sense of humor. Chekanov’s graphics are an emotional, accessible, character-driven narrative.
