The boundless dreams of childhood are within reach in the enchanting works of Victor Nizovtsev, designer of Paperblanks Wonder & Imagination Series. Nizovtsev, who now resides in Maryland, was born in 1965 in Ulan-Ude, Siberia. At age seven he began attending art school and later studied at the elite Vera Mukhina University for Industrial Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia. Technically brilliant and encompassing both academic formalism and surrealism, his work hearkens back to the golden age of children’s book illustration. His subjects invoke the fantastic figures that linger deep in our collective imaginations and his techniques, such as the use of translucent glazes, bewitch with color and light.
The artist’s stated hope that his paintings “will give people a small taste of their childhood and will inspire their own stories” is a gleaming sliver of the magic they conjure in the eye of the viewer. Within the art of Nizovtsev, the infinite possibilities of childhood are awakened – expansive opportunities just waiting to be discovered.
