MOSCOW, September 1 /TASS/. Nicolas Sarkozy’s presidency was a big but expected surprise, Paul Sarkozy, a businessman, a painter and the father of the French ex-president, Nicholas Sarkozy, said at his exhibition in Moscow on Tuesday.
"I am receiving a good and very special welcome in Moscow. It makes it possible for me to meet various people. But I would like to warn you in advance that I will not answer any political questions," Paul Sarkozy the senior said.
Instead, he spoke a lot about his family. "I have five children and all of them have absolutely exceptional careers. The fact that one of my sons became the president of France was a big but expected surprise. He had always had an ambition to become the first man in France," Paul Sarkozy said.
"My creative style is unique and does not look like any of the already existing styles. I am creating a new style now, which I notionally call the ‘bas-relief’. I hope I will have a chance to demonstrate it soon," the Sarkozy father stressed.
Paul Sarkozy arrived in Moscow at the invitation of Zurab Tsereteli, the president of the Russian Academy of Arts, with whom he has long and friendly creative ties. Paul Sarkozy’s exhibition is under way at Zurab Tsereteli’s Art Gallery.
Paul Sarkozy is a descendant of Hungarian aristocrats, a foreign legionnaire and the founder of an advertising company, which used to work with leading French brands. It is not the first time that Sarkozy is displaying his works in Moscow. His first exhibition, "The Unconscious", took place in 2011. It was a retrospective show of Sarkozy’s works created jointly with painter Werner Hornung.
After Moscow, Paul Sarkozy is planning to take his exhibition to the Urals, the Siberia and the Far East.
