Nikolai Tioply

nikolai_tioply N. Tioply is a member of St.Petersburg Artist's Union of Russia; of St.Petersburg Branch of Professional Creative Artist's Union of the International Federation of Artists (IFA); of Art Critics and Art Historians Association (AIS).

The founder and the director of Forum Art Gallery (St. Petersburg)

N. Tioply`s pictures and drawings are visual proof of the fact theh a non - figurative picture can be filled with logic and sense hardly touching the material world. His quest is persistent and often very fruitful, in his painting there oppears a clot of colour and plastic energy, "a genetic code" allowing in a small canvas to guess a compressed universe, ready to split far away from the picture plane. In his works you can see resolute movement, dissatisfaction and a long - standing, worthy desire to combine the lessons of his brilliant teachers with his own independent vision, with his own plastic world.
