«For me, the status of a collector is valuable not only as an expression of my own, albeit subjective, preferences, but also as an opportunity to trace the «small» history of the fine arts of our country. In addition, after spending a lot of time in search of new works, I learned a lot about the fate of interesting artists, I think, became closer to understanding the era in which they lived. Fortunately, I still managed to buy some of the works of these masters. I am very happy to share works of art with the Kazakh and foreign public. After all, real collectors not only have masterpieces of art, but also strive to share», – said its owner, businessman Nurlan Smagulov about his collection.
