Gart Shtapakov is a young artist and a son of a well-known St Petersburg artist Alexandra Gart, one of the founders of an independent non-commercial art space called Shame. Gart is fond of the underwater world, birds, anime, obsessed with minerals, and writes his own books about birds and animals. He started exhibiting with his mother at the age of 2. By the age of 7, he has created an enormous body of work, including a great number of lithographs and engravings using his mother's vintage printing press. There are quite a few amazing artworks by Gart in the Youngest Collection.
