Nikolai Blokhin

Nikolai/Nikolay Blokhin is a wonderfully sensitive draftsman, who was professor of drawing at St Petersburg Academy of Art.  He paints too, but it’s his drawings which I really like.

I’ve only recently started exploring the Russian art scene, and I really feel like I’ve been missing out, there’s some extraordinary talent there.
