Medal of excellence

Yury KutYur (Yury Kutlugildin) belongs to a new generation of Artists whose creations reflect the present day life in its full diversity and dynamic. The artist was born in Yakutia, spent his childhood in the Ukraine and Bashkiria (Sibai). After that, once having visited Saint-Petersburg, he decided to stay there, and already for 7 years he's been living and creating his works in this city. Now graphic works and paintings of the artist are being exhibited in galleries of Saint-Petersburg and Moscow. Some of his works can be found in private collections in the USA, Australia, Germany, France, Finland and Luxemburg.KutYur works in the style of gothic modern, on the verge of the modern and the retrospective. His art is characterized by a blend of contemporary oil painting, elongated forms and gothic symbolism, austerity of composition and afocus on ornament and clothes details. His paintings are as colorful, bright and radiant as medieval stained glasses. The mask - like faces are full of light sorrow over lost innocence.By this means the artist tries to escape the hustle of the transient life, turning to the eternal.

From this, they select which projects they would like to discuss in one-to-one meetings at MeetMarket. Projects can be in development, production or post-production, and cross-platform projects are also very welcome. MeetMarket will give artists an opportunity to present new projects to funders and commissioners from across the spectrum of the documentary and art worlds.

please watch my video on youtube ETNIKTRONIKA and myspace music sample ETNIKTRONIKA. ETNIKTRONIKA is a Laguna, Philippines-based sound art group that uses handmade electronic sound art instruments, as well as some ethnic instruments, to create their sound. Many of their instruments are crafted from second hand items obtained from nearby junk shops, such as the 'Uyabon' (a word that means 'girlfriend in Ilonggo'), which is a cross between a mannequin and a toy keyboard with tampered circuitry. Led by Mel Araneta, Etniktronika is carving a new path simultaneously into music and art by creating unique instruments that create a unique sound.


Hello, my name is Melissa, from U K, and I want to express my gratitude for the extensive work you have done over the past week. It was a pleasant feeling a lot of warmth and peace flowed through to me I believe. I felt immediately calmer when the you cast the magic spell and the feeling stayed with me through-out the next couple of weeks. I wish to convey that I have received my results this morning. I was shy to return the talisman to nature and I must tell you I could feel a pulse from it. Or a slow rhythmic juddering. A vibration even, to the extent I can hold it; and I feel the imprint of the vibration in my hand when I take it out again, as this is my first ever experience doing anything like this I feel the need to record every moment of it. I look forward to the next chapter in this my spell and help work.Prophet Lord you are the best i will always be great-full to you. solutionoflovespelltemple@gmail.com
