Sergei Balenok is one the best known Belarusian graphic artists of the 20th century. He is also a book designer and has laid out numerous publications known to many from childhood, such as Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle”, the collection of sci-fi stories “Planet for Sale”, several collections of Joseph Brodsky’s poetry, and many others. Arts critics consider him an “atypical” or even “scandalous” artist and praise a very distinctive lyricism of his works. Yet, one can’t but feel there aren’t enough words to describe Sergei’s art and wants to come back and look at it again. This is an invaluable quality for a true piece of art — to always be an inexhaustible source of sensations, associations, emotions and thoughts so much needed for redefining both the Art and Oneself when the New self has been discovered.
