Russia
Nikolai Shurygin was born in 1957 in Kimry

In 1979 he graduated from Moscow School of applied arts (design)

During 10 years the painter has been studying multilayered painting which secrets were lost in the beginning of XIX. This unique technique was used by flemish painters as well as russian painters such Kiprensky, Levitsky, Borovikovsky and many others. The uniqueness of the technique consists in the point that every layer of paint is visible through the layer above. Using this technique the artists achieved the incredible realism of depicted subject whether a human face or any texture - silver, gold, brocade, fur, glass, etc. The term of producing a portrait or a still-life in this technique is from 4 to 12 months.
Due to the complicated process of the painting the artist's exhibition activity is not frequent.

1987 - "Earth and People" exhibition , Moscow artist Gallery, Moscow
1989 - personal exhibition, "Van Dyke" Gallery, Moscow
1992 - "Art-Myth" young painters exhibition , Moscow
1993 - young painters exhibition in the Palace of Youth, Moscow
1994 - "Russian Realism" exhibition, CPH, Moscow
1995 - exhibition in the Valentin Ryabov's Gallery
1995-2002 - creation of a number of portraits of russian politics
2002-2003 - work for Russian Embassy in Seoul

Nikolai Shurygin's works are in private collections, located in Russia, Italy, USA, Germany, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky local museum (Russia)
