IV International Youth Exlibris Competition were held in Moscow. Yesterday, 11 catalogs were sent by the Exlibris Museum personally to each participant of the competition and exhibition. And these are students of junior and senior courses of the Department “Design” of ARSU named after K. Zhubanov: Aktleuova Akerke, Amanova Lyazzat, Asheichik Karina, Bazarbaeva Aida, Barbolina Kristina, Borzenkova Nastya, Ermekova Lyaylya, Ismambetova Dina, Stepanov Denis.
It should be noted the solid members of the international jury: William Butler (USA), Anthony Pinkott (UK), Olli Jolonen (Finland), Valery Pokatov (Russia) who allowed our students to exhibit at the exhibition and publish in the catalog of exlibris.
According to William Butler: “We met with the talented works of promising young artists from around the world who made their first, but hopefully not the last contribution to the art of the exlibrises. I want to believe this initiative has a great future.” Anthony Pincott, the collector of British and European exlibrises, writes: “The successful exlibris is more than just a chart with an added name, because its traditional goal is to cut a book, the concept of exlibrises must first be born in the head of the artist. It takes time. The challenge is. To invent an impressive, harmonious design that the owner will like and can be printed in sufficient quantity at a reasonable cost. It is not easy to create something exceptional, but it is necessary to strive for this as an artist, and the customer. This is the main goal in the implementation of the exlibrises. ”
Students of ARSU named after K. Zhubanov took part in the number of 198 people from six countries of the world (Denmark, Brazil, Spain, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan).
