Artists Biography
Boris Anikin    

Boris Anikin, internationally acclaimed Russian Artist with an absolutely unique and distinct painting style.

Anikin was born in St. Petersburg in 1947; graduated from the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts in 1974. Boris is a Member of the Russian Artists Union, the country’s most prestigious government artists organization.

Boris Anikin is a profound connoisseur of Russian history and an admirer of modernistic style. He is a remarkable graphic and painting artist. His academic & classical artistic education serves as a solid ground for his fairylike abstract ideas to spill on canvas in an exquisite & unique style. The mystery of his incredibly beautiful, picturesque world on canvas shows his idealistic image of the real world, a world full of dreams, notions, harmony and beauty.
Boris Anikin works on a painting as a jeweler on panes of a diamond. His work is pierced with palace luxury and royal elegance, it is pervaded with bright fantasies from the world of fairy-tale elves. His paintings are light and poetic, compositions are very well balanced and the combination of reality & mystic is captivating.
Boris Anikin took part in numerous Art Exhibitions and Art Book Fairs and Competitions in
Russia and abroad and is a regular participant in the touring Exhibition "Artists of Russia" in the UK.

His rich kaleidoscopic oil paintings and delicate water-colours are in private collections and galleries in Russia, Europe and USA.
