Iva Stejskal: waiting for gold - obrázek

Sanchir: painting East and West - obrázek

Sanchir is an esteemed man in Ulaanbaatar. He is a descendant of Polish and Mongolian aristocrats, his father brought over from the pre-war Germany ideas of constructivism and the first violin, and Sanchir himself creates intense colorful paintings inspired with a mixture of European and Far Eastern influences. He is well read and speaks several languages.
