A WEBSITE OF MIKHAIL BELIKOV

AN ARTIST, AN EXPLORER AND A STORYTELLER


The world of wild nature is disappearing fast. The expanse of the largely untouched wilderness has been shrinking to archipelagos and then to lonely islands. Soon, our ever-expanding civilization will take over the rest, with only parks and reserves left to experience the natural world as it once was.


Similarly, globalization has been erasing the cultural diversity of our civilization. The global culture with its standardized life, be it food, architecture or entertainment, is leaving less and less space for the local traditions to persist.


Through my art and writing I share my love for, and appreciation of, the disappearing diversity of our natural and cultural worlds. My hope is that, even when the remaining islands of nature and unique culture and are gone, my works will continue telling the stories of the world as it once was.
