Sasha Shchednov, 22, arrived rather impressed from his hometown of Voronezh to participate with 600 other Russian and international artists in the second Moscow International Biennale for Young Art. Travelling with only a backpack and a huge pile of stickers – his artwork – he has been an eager visitor to the many exhibitions scattered around Moscow and hasn’t missed an opening, where he carefully examines each piece he sees. “It’s my first biennale,” he explained. “I’m a little blown away by what I see, but it’s fascinating.” Shchednov has made a point to meet as many of his fellow artists as possible, both the Russians and those from around the world.
