Maxim Kantor who is the artist, writer and thinker is regarded as one of the most recognizable figures of international cultural scene. The aim of this small exposition that is presented in St.Michael's Castle in the framework of the Second St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum a year after the great solo exhibition of this artist in the Russian Museum is to present "another Kantor". The great part of the works on show that were created during the last year has no social and political content, typical for his painting and graphics.

On this exhibition Kantor appears as the author of marinas - the expressional landscapes that are marked by the emotional power of forms or by the fineness of color and tone decision. Working in the sphere of traditional values of painting (color, texture, space decision), Kantor creates the inspired image of nature that is fulfilled by the powerful creative energy.
