In 2021, against the background of the first experiments with the material, where, in addition to bronze, the artist begins to use marble and acrylic, Zhigzhit Bayaskhalanov is also fascinated by color. Cobalt blue captivates, it is one of those colors that has changed the world of art, dividing it into before and after. Artistic searches prompted Zhigzhit Bayaskhalanov to precisely this color solution, setting the right incentive for a new experience.
