Images from Arbat

Arbat is a district in Moscow where artists gather to show their work. Almaty also has its very own Arbat, which was conveniently located on my walking route home from school. It was always so exciting to see local, creative energy and artistic expression. In the late afternoons and evenings, solo performers and bands performed here in a causal manner no different than artists on the streets of New York. Immersed in Kazakh culture, I gained a greater appreciation of local artists' perspective and enjoyed viewing their work in their native environment.

In this post, I have included images from Arbat. Enjoy!

Local artists lined their canvases along Arbat in the hopes of making a sale.
