Contemporary Russian artist Nikolai Blokhin without a doubt will be on a par with the world’s classical paintings over the centuries. Nikolai Blokhin received a classical education at the St. Petersburg Institute named after Repin, and is considered one of the best followers of Russian art with a new level of academic and realistic traditions. Nikolai Blokhin is known primarily as a portrait painter, though he also paints landscapes, still lifes, genre paintings. But it is the portrait that is the most important aspect of his talent. Blokhin is not only a skilled artist, a great colorist, he is also a connoisseur of human souls. His portraits have psychological insight, passion and emotion, idea and inspiration.
