Tereshchenko, Nikolay Ivanovitch (Russian), b. 1924

Nikolay Ivanovitch Tereshchenko - unfairly forgotten, honored artist of Russia, he must finally take his place among "the Greatest". Nikolay Ivanovich was born on 2nd of April of 1924 in a small village called Matveevka, (next to the former estate of Ivan Turgenev). Gifted by God , Tereshchenko, 9 years of age, like Lomonosov, went to Moscow on his uncle's cart, in order to become an artist, inspite of everything, and to stay there until his dying breath.

He was an alumnus of the Moscow State School of Art. He was on the first legendary course of 1939 that was evacuated to the distant town of Voskriesensk in Bashkiria during the war.

Then he graduated from the Moscow State University of Fine Arts named after Vasily Surikov, with A.Osmerkin, V.Pochitalov, S.Mikhailov as his tutors.

As fate willed, Nikolay Tereshchenko worked on political posters (1950-1967 ) where he created his unique style of "painting" posters, that reached its peak in his poster "Long live Peace!" which became a symbol of the whole epoch.

This is what the artist himself said about this stage of his life : " After receiving a diploma in painting at the Surikov University, life has "accidentally" brought me close to posters, where I stayed for exactly 17 years . When I understood posters- I fell in love with them , but left eventually- painting overpowered them.

The simplified formula of posters in his view was: "to be brief, to the point and biting", and this is hidden in all great artists' works. "

He was a member of USSR's Union of Artists since 1954. In 1970 he was awarded the title of Honoured Artist of Russia. Nikolay Tereshchenko participated in exhibitions of all scales and categories.

Those that can be marked particularly are:

1969- first group exhibition at the Moscow House of Artists ( Kuznetsky Most 11)

1976- second exhibition at the Moscow House of Artists ( Kuznetsky Most 11)

1994- first personal exhibition, "Khodinka" gallery

2004 - personal exhibition for 80th birthday , exhibition centre of Moscow Union of Artists

2009 - exhibition commemorating the 85th birthday, "Zamoskvorechje" gallery

2011 - exhibition at New Manezh

A real artist, gifted by God, Nikolay Tereshchenko expressed all his joy and sorrow through the language of fine art. Sharp,expressive portraits, psychological paintings, piercing landscapes, full of character, represent a lifetime chronicle.

Due to its distinctive individuality and originality, Nikolay Tereshchenko's painting can't be classified amongst any of the artistic movements. The definition and naming of his style is the task of future generations of art historians and analysts, but it has to be noted that Nikolay Tereshchenko's artworks are invaluable in 20th century fine art.

His practice is a fruit of development for the world's visual culture, that places N.Tereshchenko among the great artists. He approached his life and art from the point of Eternity devoid of artistic rules. Due to a mild character and honesty , Nikolay Tereshchenko didnt pay attention to his career. Nikolay's attitude towards fame was philosophical ," History will judge us" - was his favorite quotation.
