The republican exhibition of book graphics of Belarus “ILLUSTRATIO. Variety of illustration techniques” will start on February 16 at 5 pm in the Atrium (2nd floor).

Belarusian graphic artists Vera Kovzanovich, Maria Dorozhko, Andrei Basalyga prepared video masterclasses especially for the visitors of the project.

In addition to illustrative examples of book graphics, the exposition includes scientific, popular science, and educational publications dedicated to illustration techniques.
