This is freedom for authors and artists to create, and for viewers to observe, feel, understand and empathize.


The V International OpenArt Festival was held in Moscow from October 28 to 30. The theme for the 2022 festival is “Beyond Borders.” The festival is a kind of small concentration of life, even when it seems that everything around has lost its meaning. And we, the people behind the creation of Open Art, have something to say. At the festival one could see works by authors from different cities and countries – Russia, Spain, Great Britain and others. Each of them explains in his own way where the line between freedom and restrictions lies, using his own way of expression.
