Nikolai Makarov

Nikolai Makarov challenges the confines of perception and shrouds his subjects in a misty, transparent veil to deceive the senses. Reality fuses into the unreal. His object is to elicit visual sensations while concealing reality in a transformed scenario atmosphere. Subjects are alienated so as to lend greater force to the power of suggestion. 

The more his portrayals are distanced from their real yet always recognisable content, accentuating personal impressions, the greater they succeed in projecting heterogeneous but illusory associations. 

Born in Moscow in 1952, Nikolai Makarov took a degree as a master class student of Professor Werner Klemke at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. He has since worked as a freelance artist and is active on the executive board of diverse foundations and associations.
