A milieu of dedicated professionals formed in Alma-Ata at that time encouraged everyone to create works of the highest level. This creative ensemble brought Kazakhstan’s engravings first to the national level, and then to international renown. Participating in exhibitions and winning many competitions – Kazakhstan graphic arts developed into a recognizable style.
