Early in the morning, when school children are still sleeping, school janitor Semyon Bukharin takes a shovel and a broom and starts cleaning the school yard from the new-fallen snow. The result is impressive. The school yard of Izhevsk lyceum # 27 looks like an art gallery with a new art installation. A true artist, who has lived in Semyon since childhood, and his creative nature have made the process of snow cleaning an art. His thankful fans – students of the lyceum have created an account on Instagram where they share his creativity with the whole world. Snow painting by Semyon Bukharin has made him an Instagram star. It’s a pity these beautiful paintings created on a fresh snow disappear in some hours. Semyon states that the drawings look best in the moonlight, when you can see the penumbra. From snow and ice Semyon also makes sculptures
