Since 1988, using mixed techniques and various materials: ceramics, wood, metal and acrylic, Kirill Protopopov has worked above the theme of Old and New Testament sculpture, which was first exhibited in 1993 in the MARS Gallery.

In the next years there were created the following collections: «People and Lions» (1993–1995), «Paradise Birds» (1996), «Objects from the sky» (1997–1998), «Going within Time» (1999–2000), «Rhein Angels» (2001–2002), each of which represents sculptures made of bronze, decorated with half-precious stones.

At the present moment Kirill Protopopov is working in the direction of constant search, trying to connect a heritage of ancient cultures with the modern civilization. consists of works from the series: «The keepers of the Town», «Holy Animals», «Going Figures», where he uses kinetic elements, mixedcolor tonality of bronze and stone, which symbolize eternal life circulation, simultaneously being the keepers of eternal spiritual values.
