Nikolai is an artist of ancient architectonic ensembles, archaic charm of Russian Villages and loves above all, nature. He specializes in floral and landscape subjects and does not care much for artificial floral arrangements to which he prefers very simple and natural bouquets in which he rarely mixes species, unless they are set in separate vases. He arranges harmonious bouquets of lilacs, Lilly of the valley, forget-me-nots, asters, peonies, jasmine, and daisies using most often an off-white backdrop, or roses: just one or two with long stems. Usually, they are flowers that have peaked and you can already detect the first signs of wilting which gives them a slight nostalgic look.
They look as if they were delicately placed in a vase and forgotten. The nostalgia of times gone past, also transpires from some of the still lifes where the samovar and small porcelain decorated with traditional Russian blue are reminiscent of old times.
He also likes to evoke birch forests with their whitish tree bark, which lend themselves well to painting and allow the imagination to weave between the trees through the warmly colored underbrush.
The talent of the artist is also evident in his renderings of towns, churches and monasteries with their steeples and bell towers.
Since 1999, Nikolai lives and works in Paris, France. His private shows are held twice a year in numerous French cities. His paintings are always appreciated by
art collectors who like traditional impressionism and combination of Russian and French cultural themes
and spirit.

His paintings can be found in private collections in: Russia, Japan, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Ukraine, Italy, Luxemburg and the USA.
