"He has long been trying to find himself. He has been drawing from life a lot. He is outstanding in making sculpture etudes from life. Valery Yevdokimov knows how to place a model on a platform like no one else – that is why I enjoy working with him so much, and I am not the only one. This ability of the artist reveals itself in a collection of sheets of graphics presented in its entirety for the first time at this exhibition."
