The project has already gone on display in Moscow and is now available to Belarusian art connoisseurs. The name of the exhibition, Dawn, has a symbolic meaning. Marat Gadhiyev, in his own words, used to watch the sunrise in the mountains when he was a child. These motifs still impress the artist.

The books were donated to the National Library of Belarus, the Presidential Library of Belarus, the Yakub Kolas Central Scientific Library of Belarus’ National Academy of Sciences, and the library of Belarusian State University of Culture and Arts.

Marat Gadzhiyev has held personal exhibitions in Makhachkala, Krasnodar, Moscow, and Kaspiysk. His works are kept at the Dagestan Museum of Fine Arts and make part of private collections across the globe.
