LEILA MAKHAT, ARTIST:

 - My activity in other countries gave me an idea that I made a very big break in solo exhibitions in Kazakhstan, in Astana. Since I create to tell about my culture, all my works are connected with the history of Kazakhstan. It seems to me that it is very important to convey the features of the modern Kazakh art to ensure that they are understood overseas.
