White Night Fairy by KnyazevSergey
White Night Fairy
A girl depicted on this box is a kind fairy who helps nature to avoid freezing, winter usually follows her. Fluffy snowflakes help to do that and nights become purely white at the moment she comes. Trees and flowers are always safe under white snow cover.
Snowmaiden by KnyazevSergey
Popular russian fairy-tale returns to us every year before Christmas. Snowmaiden is a beautiful daughter of Father Frost. She is not a human being but wants to live with people and to know what love is.

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
I live in old russian town of Vladimir. I studied at the art college, design and decoration. My favourite style is russian lacquer art Fedoskino. It combines design, oil painting. I am a professional artist, work in a special glazing-transparent technique — using layer by layer oil painting, mother-of-pearl, gold leaf, gold and silver powder. In my gallery presented artworks of different genres: portrait, landscape, folk, architecture, fairy-tale, fantasy, surreal. I like to work in this technique, just holding unready work in my hands and looking on it from different ways is charming. Shining of mother-of-pearl, gold and painting creates three-dimensional effect. All of my art is unique creative one-of-a-kind works. On my site will be added description with details to every artwork. My slogan is constantly improve and open something new and unusual.

Every artist have their own way and my art says everything for me. I used to work in monumental painting style, graffito, aerography and design. My miniatures unite painting and stylih design, as I myself develop new forms and designs it fascinates me. I participated in art exhibitions, my boxes are in private collections in USA, Europe, Australia; in art catalogue books. Time required to create a good box — from 1 month to 6 as the process needs not only creative way, but maintaining the technology too. My work is a hard process that requires time and patience, beginnig from inlaying of mother-of pearl, preparation of place for silver powder, applying several thin layers of paint, drying and varnishing every layer, polishing etc.
