Ivan Nesvetilo is the author of paintings, wall paintings and reliefs that adorn private and public spaces not only in Russia but also in many other countries of the world. His works are in eight state museums of Russia, Ukraine, Italy. Vigorous creative activity began in the 1990s when at the initiative of the artist creative groups were created (“Triangle +”, “White Pyramid”) and even an artistic direction (“bi-reality”).
