All “post-prints” are based on an original copper plate engraving. Between 1992 and 2005, Makov worked on a major art project called Utopia. A number of works from this project were acquired by private and institutional collectors, including the collection of Pinchuk Art Centre. The most recent exhibition of Makov “Alleyway.
