“As a reference, I used the portrait of Amangeldi Imanov, painted by the famous artist Abylkhan Kasteyev. I drew it in the style of digital art, so I had to change it a bit. If you look closer, the hero’s eyes reflect his character and courage,” said Syrgabai.

Imanov was one of the organizers of the national liberation uprising in 1916. Kazakhstan will mark his jubilee with a number of cultural, educational and sporting events this year.
