By Patrice de la Perriere, art critic, editor in charge of the review ‘Universe of the Arts’
This aspiration to express the invisible, to create an emotional atmosphere, contributes to captivating and touching a transfiguration of reality.Born in a peasant family on the banks of the river Volga Nikolay Kuzmin is one of the great representatives of the Muscovite School of artists. Since his childhood he has found inspiration in popular culture among songs, poetry and traditional art.
Revealing his Russian origin in his painting, between nostalgia and lucidity towards life, he can also touch, through particularly humane little stories, the universality of sentiment.His universe, rich in both aesthetic and emotional sensations, brings a creative inspiration to discover in the contemporary world.
Nikolay Kuzmin appears in the Salon du Dessin et de la Peinture à l’Eau and in the Salon des Artistes Français in Grand Palais, within the framework of « Art Capital », from November 9th to 19th, 2006, and in the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, in Carrousel du Louvre from December 14 to 17, 2006.
The artist’s work can also be seen in the Daniel Besseiche galleries (Paris, Geneva, Dinard, Courchevel).
