The whole Ukraine speaks about the "Silver Easel" - the contest has proven itself as a highly professional art event with a good organization and high criteria of participants’ selection. Each time "Silver Easel" is supported by the larger number of the well-known partners. Among such, there is the UTICO company. We asked its founder Ihor Vlasov about the reasons for such a support.

Ihor Vlasov is pleasantly impressed by Uzhhorod and the level of organization of the "Silver Easel". He confessed that he managed to feel the atmosphere of creativity and inspiration! He told us about his impressions.

‘“Silver Easel” is a large-scale contest that is truly impressive! - Ihor commented with enthusiasm. I think that this is the first such event in Transcarpathia, which profoundly declares itself, which is known to the whole country and even abroad. The desire to take part in the contest was demonstrated by a lot of talented students and the best ones were chosen from more than three hundred applications – it speaks about a decent level of the event!’

 The contest partner had the opportunity to go through the locations, to assess the scale of the art event personally, to talk to young artists, but first of all, to feel the atmosphere, creative spirit prevailed in Uzhhorod these days. Ihor is pleased with the result: “I did not expect to see such a concentration of nice paintings. I sincerely admit: I am not a critic, not a specialist and not an artist. I cannot thoroughly evaluate these works, to give a professional assessment, but I like the things I see, they capture and inspire!"

Winners awarding ceremony became a challenge for the contest partner - it was not easy to choose the best! Ihor made a decision with a creative approach: "It’s hard for me to choose the best, so I decided to award three prizes - in each nomination. I hesitated until the last moment, which one to choose - avant-garde or classic?

In general, it is very important to help students take the first steps. It is necessary to support their undertakings in art. I wish them good luck. I know from my own experience that the organization of art events is rather a difficult matter. And here everything is organized at a decent level. I’m grateful to the Brovdi family for their "baby", which begins to stand on its own feet and for the opportunity to be involved in this."

And we thank Ihor for his visit to Uzhhorod, for a good response and, most importantly, for the support of the “Silver Easel”!
