Waiting for Wildlife, British Columbia, Canada. This is not a camo outfit -- bugs were eating me alive!
Belikov is an artist, an explorer and a storyteller. He has travelled
to dozens of countries on five continents capturing the unforgettable
beauty of these places. He lives in Victoria on Vancouver Island in
Canada, a place of urban charm surrounded by rugged nature.
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.
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. Most images displayed on this site, and many others, are
available as fine
art prints. For more information, please contact.
