One autumn day in Yas s firewood in the forest. Suddenly he heard — a strange cry. Owls? .. Oh, no owls? .. In a couple of owls sleep more, of course. Creek, it seems, man, there, behind the windbreak …
Vladimir Savic introduced in Belarusian art of a handful of stereotypes, which are components of the Belarusian style. For example, anthropological type Belarusians as Vislous, with thick hair, with big expressive eyes and necessarily somewhat dry, with sharply outlined hrashchavatym cheeks and a long nose.

Yuri Brezan. Black Mill: Story of a fairy-tale. Translation from serboluzhitskie Ales Troyanovskiy. Minsk, "Fiction", 1984. Artist Valery Slavuk
The search for a national style that made the graphics on the Belarusian border 60's and 70's, were violently pursued the generation that came to our art in the early 1980s. Among that generation is and figure Valeria Slavuka. It is very early, still a student, developed his own style. Primarily is the love of monochrome, black-and-white graphics, in baroque detail and saturated characters. Seems to have no end, the artist simply did not have the sheet in order to develop them in all directions … Luzhychanskaya tale about a miller black sorcerer that their employees turned into pigs, horrible and fantastic, Nada artist. Of course, in the way of the evil wizard was daring lad. Probably, the young artist is easy to associate themselves with this goodie, but because everything was very organic — and book design and meticulous, time-consuming illustration. Black and white. While the "stagnation" this book was a sensation at all. It struck all. Surprised decoration, with one side ascetic, monochrome, and with On the other hand — rich, varied, boundless in their feelings. And wondered what is the translation of an amazing little serboluzhitskie language. That all came together under one cover, wrapped in super-shiny cover — the real magic. World Slavuka, Brezana and Troyanovskiy inhabited by real and fantastic creatures fluttering in the marsh reeds and black forests, large and small creatures that are around us is full of dreams and reality — a world of its territory. This world has brought the artist fame as one of the best artists of the book in Belarus. But, perhaps, his grotesque characters are best understood as adults, when there is a sense of humor. Therefore, the work Slavuka can decorate my office or reading room.
The Wild Hunt: a legend in the figures on the novel by Vladimir Karatkevich "The Wild Hunt of King Stach." Minsk, Youth, 1990. Artists Adam Globe and Vladimir Stepan.
Today Adam Globe and Vladimir Stepan known for more than writers. And they began as artists manumentalisty. In the history of our culture, the two men and a place of honor belongs to the creators of the first Belarusian full of comics. They boldly set about redefining the classic works of Vladimir Karatkevich and drew his "The Wild Hunt." "The dark clouds of oppression sailed along the Belarus …" — a tale from which the story begins, or as ironic in the context of the book, beautiful and original, that is worthy of our Belarusian ideology, not name. In those shining like stained glass, yellow-scarlet figures in the style of folk art really, the Soviet kamerton of harassment, share-Nedolya somewhere dropped completely. It was a brand new and in the form and content of the book. New Belarusian book. Was a completely new and "capitalist" genre of comics, called Stefan and Globe to popularize classical work among children.

Vladimir Yagovdik. "Seven Wonders of Belarus." Minsk, "Cavalier Pablishers", 1999. Artist Paul Tatarnikov
There are books, I would say so simple content. That Vladimir Yagovdik listed as our national wonders: Bialowieza, "Bible" Skoriny cross Euphrosyne … Schedule Paul Tatarnikov reincarnated lyapidarny author story in a fantastic tale. This young artist is in itself a graphical Belarusian school has saved its best traditions. Belonging to the school that he Tatarnikov always emphasizes allowed him to now and worldwide recognition. He often combines the book turns a spectacular large-scale foreground and the second rocker, which can be panoramas and landscapes, and some stafazh. But his plane page book is not destroyed, but rather, it is an opportunity to show something more to help the viewer to look beyond the horizon of pages of paper. This technique is an artist and creates an extra dimension, almost endless, until you close the book, created Tatarnikov.
Peter Vasyuchenko. Once upon pans Kublitski yes Zablotski. Fabulous apovestsi. Minsk, "Fiction," 2003. Artist Vladimir Lukashik
Books can be taken in hand, unlike other works of art. Books must be taken in hand! Because otherwise, they know that pearls tusknuts and die. Here's another book I want to take this in hand — "Once Upon a Time lords Kublitski Zablotski yes", a real masterpiece of modern printing. For the artist in this book it was important — and you illustration and cover, and fonts. Among the features of the creativity of Vladimir Looky — attention to detail, their filigree processing. Looky willing and able to work on the details. After all, they sometimes lies the most important thing. In this book, Peter Vasyuchenko too. Here the artist has his reasons. His illustrations do not duplicate without written regurgitate content, and bring us into the magical, unknown world in which to create the characters of the text. This book is and came out. Not casually watching her with interest both children and adults. Sometimes it is a book illustration or story, taken from the literature, become self-sufficient works of Vladimir Looky, which can be seen at various exhibitions and which look equally good on the walls of the office and senseless quiet apartment.
