           With the reference instead of the diploma - a heavy strip in Gennady's life began. There was no sense to come back to Omsk: mother and father had already divorced and parted to the different cities. For employment in Moscow the registration was required. On the advice of casual people he settled to work in police. He entrusted a position of the point-policeman on Belorusskaya Square.
         Every day he plunged into the atmosphere of human dramas, tragedies, crimes, meanness, revenge. It was life’s "wrong side", opposite to which he learned at school and at institute. Here fight for life, sufferings. It "was overflowed" with the bright persons, unusual scenes, surprising destinies. The artist tried to remember everything and to draw scenes at home. It was succeeded, at last, to gain the diploma of Surikov institute - in 2 years after its termination, having presented (among other works) the works rejected earlier by E.A. Kibrik.


In the Far East. 1968..

With his father Michael. 1964

Among Omsk friends. 1968.

         In 3,5 years, he received a registration and a living space, in 1967 Gennady left police. He got a job of the hospital attendant in Sklifosovsky institute, hoping that the mode (one day at work, three – at home) would allow him to spend more time for art. He liked to work as the hospital attendant. He deeply sympathized with the people who had got into trouble, helped them. Other hospital attendants laughed at his tender-heartedness when he treated patients with candies, apples.
        The same year Gennady passed to work as the hospital attendant wrecker to city psychiatric hospital #7. It was his duty to carry unbalanced people coming to Moscow "looking for truth” to places of their continuous accommodation. For 2,5 years he traveled all over a half-country, accompanying the unfortunate. He thought of their diseases, destinies, the reasons of failures. Some insane seemed naive  children to him, not capable to accept artful "rules" of life habitual by all. They "revolted" the silent lonely protest. Others were pursued by the persuasive crazy thoughts which have been often connected with space, with nuclear explosion and radiation. They were oppressed by constant fear, and they heard "internal voices". But there were patients possessing the freakish imagination, having obviously creative origin. Gennady began to be interested in psychiatry, bought textbooks, collections of articles, read Cesare Lambrozo's most interesting book "Genius and madness".
         All these years the artist continues to  draw on memory, creates graphic and picturesque portraits of acquaintances, visits a lithographic workshop on Maslovka.
