Leather, felt and silver are common to nomadic people. Ishenbek Chalanov's artwork is applied to leather in a way that connects him to his Central Asian ancestral roots. He says, "I give it artistic style without competing with nature."

Chalanov studied at the Kyrgyz State Arts College and is a member of the Designers Union and Artists Union of the Kyrgyz Republic. A prominent leather artist, his work has appeared in exhibitions in Russia and other International events and is housed in private collections in the USA, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Kazakhstan, Russia, Pakistan and other countries.
