"It is my great pleasure to create paintings, whether for galleries or children's books, because it is important to maintain child-like wonder to truly appreciate the amazing world we live in. What do I want a viewer to feel when they look at my work? My answer is simple: absolute delight!" - Gennady Spirin.
