Ukrainian Sergey Sparlkers has been drawing for almost 50 years of his life and has mastered such a unique profession.
“We choose to showcase a one of a kind type of art in order to teach people about different types of artwork and them an amusing show,” says Sergey.
Diana Musiiashenko, an organiser of the performance, said that sparklers art cannot be taught to children because it’s dangerous for them, but we are planning to teach adults and those interested in this kind of art.
“Our company is an entertainment agency coming from Keiv, Ukraine to take part in 38th Sharjah International Book Fair for the 7th time in a row,” she added.
“We have given a different kind of performance every year, such as stage shows, live ballerina shows which are our own production shows, including costumes and music,” says Diana.
“Performances are not just Ukrainian, but also international shows that showcase cultures and unique arts of different countries, and our work team has more than 10,000 talented performers,” she concludes.
