Gallery Borey presents an exhibition of paintings by Marya Burago "Poor People".

Marya Burago was born in Moscow in 1968. In 1985 she entered, and in 1992 she graduated from the Moscow Institute of Architecture. I’ve been fond of painting since childhood. She worked in archeology, decorated interiors. Lives in Moscow, teaches painting.
