VOLGOGRAD, March 3 – RIA Novosti. Volgograd resident Anton Kiselev donated a portrait of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin made from beads (artificial pearls) according to the author’s technique to the Stalingrad War Museum, RIA Novosti correspondent reported.

The table is 110 cm wide and 130 cm high. According to the master, it took more than 130 thousand beads and about a month of work to create it.

“The idea to create a portrait of Stalin came in the summer, I wanted to do it for the 80th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of Stalingrad,” the author told reporters.

Anton Kiselev said that he made the painting based on a portrait of the Soviet leader found on the Internet. The hardest part was choosing the colors.

“I used a kind of automation, I developed my own software for automatic beadwork. I’m not an artist, I’m more of a technical person. I found a portrait and digitized it,” explains Kiselev.

He works as a technical director at one of the Volgograd research institutes, and painting beads is a hobby to which he has devoted about 15 years. The master noted that the first work is a portrait of his daughter. Now in his collection there are paintings of Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great and other historical figures. According to the creator, now by April 12 he will make a portrait of Yuri Gagarin and donate it to the Moscow Museum of Cosmonautics, as well as a portrait of football player Leonel Messi.

In turn, the director of the museum “Battle of Stalingrad” Alexei Dementiev promised to accept the painting in the background and display it at thematic exhibitions.

Recently, the exhibition “DK USSR” was opened in Moscow Manege, which coincided with the 100th anniversary of the Soviet Union. You can visit until April 1, 2023.
