I have a dear friend, whose name you may not know…but you have definitely seen his paintings.
They are everywhere on our website and our channels, and he even painted our logo.
Kumar Alzhanov (pictured above) is a prolific painter inspired by the Ringing Cedars series.
He is the most well-known Ringing Cedars inspired artist in Russia, and perhaps the world.
These are some of his paintings.
Over the last year, I (Gabriel Miguel) have gotten to know Kumar personally.
In him, I have found a true friend, a dear brother, and a sincere and humble person worthy of great respect. He’s one of the most humble and generous people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
He doesn’t seek name or fame.
He simply shares his art with the world freely, in order to help inspire and uplift people, and spread Anastasia’s message.
Kumar paints, and shares all of his paintings for everyone’s FREE use on his VK page: https://vk.com/kumar82.
He’s been doing this for years.
Through the prolific sharing of his art that he has done over a roughly two decade career, he has touched and inspired hundreds of thousands of people.
He doesn’t ask for anything in return. Only if people appreciate his art, to donate to him whatever they feel to.
Currently, Kumar needs a new camera.
He has been taking photos of his stunning paintings with his smartphone, and he’s unable to capture high quality images that way.
He needs a new DSLR camera, to take high quality pictures of his paintings, to keep sharing them with the world.
He is someone so deeply committed to spreading Anastasia’s message in the world — it’s deeply moving. This is his way of contributing to the movement.
I am asking your help in supporting my dear friend, and world-class artist with getting a new camera.
He told me he needs approximately $1500.
If we raise more than the initial goal, everything will go to him to help him buy better equipment, update his newly built studio, and take care of himself so he can continue to create and share with the world.
Your generous support is deeply appreciated by me, and even more so by Kumar.
He didn’t ask me to do this fundraiser, but I felt very much that I wanted to help him, and this is how I am able.
Please support my dear friend, and help him continue spreading his inspiring light in the world!
With deep gratitude and appreciation, joy and bright thoughts to you,
Founder & Executive Director
