"Classical training epitomizes the work of Natasha Mokina and Victor Pakhomkin"
– Barbara K., Home and Design Magazine.
"Natasha Mokina's amazing still lifes are witty and lovely; she is one of those rare people who can make a revival style seem completely contemporary and fresh."
– "The Baltimore Sun"
"These artists bring a long history of an art system deeply rooted in classical training and techniques. These roots owe their birth to Peter the Great, who envisioned a Russian Academy of Fine Arts early in the 18th century whose aim was to develop a distinct Russian identity via an unique combination of classical European and native Russian influences."
