Author of Chocolate Museum, Mr Nikolya Popov about his exhibition:
“AAll art pieces at my exhibition are edible, everything is made out of chocolate, marzipan, fondant paste, food dyes and sugar bids. In general I spend up to 2 to 4 month of “sweet labor” to create the Chocolate Museum. Every single “chocolate creature” consumes a significant amount of laborious tasks, attention and professional skills. Some of exhibits consist of many separate chocolate parts, for example, my Eiffel Tower has 512 parts. I always enjoy when I see excited guests who may not believe that such constructions could be made of pure chocolate!”
Over 150 chocolate art pieces will be dedicated to the history and culture of China. Signature Chinese ancient constructions, symbols and art objects will be presented in chocolate. Author will create a chocolate series of exhibits to present Silk Road, Xi’an customs and traditions and, of course, chocolate Terracotta Warriors.
