(1946 - )

View Artwork


The source of Nikolai’s inspiration is in his conscious acceptance of the absolute laws of the Universe, his striving to establish and consolidate the principal of each individual’s perfection as the only means of attaining the harmony of cosmic being. The artist is closely examining the paths of Oriental and Occidental wisdom. In his work he merges philosophy and art, for in human perception, he believes the immediate experience of reality is inseparable from a search for its deep-rooted source.
Viewing the artist’s works, one will repeatedly turn to musings upon the meaning of life, on one’s place in life and on the path to spiritual betterment that lies ahead.
