"The most important thing that I got from PRO ARTE are friends and future members of the North-7 art group, as well as new skills and knowledge — first and foremost, a critical approach to everything, my own work included. It's been 6 years since my graduation, but we are still engaged in ongoing collaborations and collective projects with my PRO ARTE friends, who have already become famous, venerable artists."
