Using different types of wood in the work, natural play of color and material pattern of even one species, you can achieve great expressiveness of the image.

Igor Anatolyevich's works are dedicated to Belarusian cult architecture. They depict churches and churches that are located not only in the well-studied, but also the most intimate corners of Belarus: the Transfiguration Church in Zaslavl, the Church of the Corpus Christi in Nesvizh, the Church of Michael the Archangel in the village of Mikhalishki, the Church of the Mother of God Shkaparyarnaya in the village of Idolta and dr.


Particularly valuable for the author is the painting depicting the Holy Ascension Church in the urban village of Luzhesno, Vitebsk Region, since Igor Anatolyevich's great-grandfather, a native of those places, made great efforts to build this temple.
