People’s Artist of Belarus Ivan Misko celebrates his 85th birthday anniversary. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko greeted the sculptor on his birthday.
Ivan Misko, a native of Slonim district, managed to reach the peak of popularity by promoting the theme of Space. Among his debut works are portrait sculptures of Yuri Gagarin, Piotr Klimuk, and Vladimir Kovalenko.
He also captured other world-famous conquerors of the Universe. By the way, the sculptor himself is not a rare honourable visitor of the Star City.
Ivan Misko,People’s Artist of Belarus:
I had never before in my life thought about it, but then I just couldn’t stop thinking about Space. I am grateful and happy that this subject is part of my life. And whenever I visit the Star City, I feel myself at home. It is a place where I know a lot of people, where my modelling stand, plasticine and work material are. It is always pleasant for me to visit this place. I get new strengths and inspiration there.
Many big-name cosmonauts had once visited the sculptor’s workshop and today they all congratulate him on his birthday. Being out in space, cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky, a native of Belarus, congratulated Ivan Misko from the International Space Station.
