In fact, Vadim Zaritsky worked in the Interior Ministry – the police major taught ballistics in the Russian city of Lipetsk. Now his main passion is paintings with the wings of butterflies. Vadim does not kill thousands of butterflies. For his pictures he collects insects dying en masse on the paths and roads, and also gratefully accepts the dead butterflies from collectors and catchers. It takes the artist from one week to several months to create a picture of butterfly wings.
