Izhevsk Artist Refuses to Display his Works in Louvre

Works by Russian artist Vitaly Okun from the city of Izhevsk created a furore at the famous international fine arts exhibition BIENNALE de MALTE 2009en FRANCE held once in two years in different cities of the world.
      I was late in Paris, when the exposition in the prestigious gallery Expo Entree Libre was already ready. When they looked at my works, a place for them was found at once, other works moved a little - Mr. Okun says.
      Upon the closing of the biennale my works were recommended to Louvre, to be more exact, to the exhibition CARROUSEL DU LOUVRE les Grands Maitres de demain. But participation fees are too high. The membership fee is ?100 plus ?300 for each displayed work. I have no such money. But then right before my departure the gallery IMA Galerie dArt in Latin Quarter did not hesitate to take my works - the artist explains.
