Father was laying in bed when I was feeding him breakfast. He died in my arms on the same day – he suffocated, he had lung cancer. He was 75 years old. He was a brilliant poet, I believe, and he betrayed the poet in him. He did not publish anything, he worked as an engineer. My name is Ivan Shukin. I am 36 years old now. Here we stop. This is a moment of breakthrough. I am an artist; I am creativity; I am carrying the paintings from the room, I am going to publish, dad.
