Elena Buyanova painting

 donated by Exupéry International School

The painting was provided by the founder of the Exupery International School Elena Buyanova, who is a member of the creative union Wonder Art.

The noun wonder describes a surprise, an amazement, a miracle – something impossible and incredible. Each meaning of the word reveals the emotions that arise in those who see the artwork for the first time and also in the artists.

The completion of the creative process is always accompanied by the same emotions – astonishment, the sense of miracle and amazement. It is also accompanied by one important question – what could it mean? That is the creatively fascinating process of transforming emotional energy into a physical form. What makes this artwork unique? It cannot be duplicated or copied. It is filled with energy and has its own unique meaning and message, which everyone reads in their own way. Each individual sees something different, but no one remains indifferent.
