Ukraine-born, Paris-based artist Nikolay Tolmachev crafts provocative watercolor paintings showcasing a knack for elegance and wry humor. The artist’s practice also delves in illustration, recently providing work for a release of the classic narrative poem “Kateryna” by Taras Shevchenko.
“He has developed a talent for the arts, drawing his hand at sculpture then drawing,” Da-End Gallery says. “Thanks to watercolors, which has become his medium of expertise, he unveils a sweet and figurative world, inspired by Romanticism and Symbolism.”
