On 21 October 2010, the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC) and Asters hosted a Fall Festival Party for members and guests of the USUBC to celebrate friendship between the U.S. and Ukraine and to enjoy the autumn view of Kyiv. As a part of the party Asters presented the exhibition L&M of the modern Ukrainian artist Alexey Malykh, courtesy of art producer Andriy Levchenko.

The event was attended by the USUBC members, Asters clients and friends, including top managers of the leading Ukrainian and foreign companies and financial institutions, representatives of international organizations, mass media, art critics, and connoisseurs. Guests were greeted by USUBC's President Morgan Williams and Asters' Senior Partner Armen Khachaturyan. Alexey Malykh explained his own transformation in career of an artist and shared some stories behind the exposed artworks. During the party guests had an opportunity to network and enjoy night city's panorama in an exquisite artistic environment augmented with live folk music by GhurtYoGhurt.

Alexey Malykh is one of the most known names in the Ukrainian contemporary art. His works, whatever is the subject, sparkle with artistic expression, deep meaning and colors. In the eyes of art critics, Alexey Malykh is an "archeologist who constantly excavates culturally, digs out and reflects on the canvases the debris and fossils of a perished world and of the lost experience which we, nevertheless, are still missing". In artistic world the artist's nickname is "shaman" because of the mystical energy filling his projects – Shaman and Venus, The Beautiful Carpathians, Maya's Light, Summertime, Second of October, Sky and Earth, Solars, and many others.
