We have an amazing new collection of works by Victor Nemo! If you made it to our show last week you got to see them first - but we still a few left, so if you have a chance to come by these are definitely worth seeing in person!
With only one day to go before school starts, are you soaking up some final rays at the cottage, or getting in some last-minute preparations for tomorrow? However you're spending your day, have a great time!
Looks like we're getting a bit of rain today! Gardens in the area are sure to be happy for all of the water after the last few hots days we've had. For those of you out and about today, we have a lovely painting by Victor Nemo to suit the mood:
Today we have some amazing new mixed-media works by Victor Nemo! From an early age he was determined to become an artist. Nemo began intense inquiry into the style and techniques of the famous painters. He was particularly impressed by the work of Ivan Shishkin and Salvador Dali, and he enrolled in art school but did not enjoy the strict academic style of the Russian based academy. Knowing that a standard education was not for him, he abandoned it to pursue training on his own. His talent quickly flourished and soon he was organizing large outdoor art fairs to show his work and that of other young artists. At this point in his life Nemo enlisted in the Soviet Army where he served for two years. After completing his tour, his motivation to become a professional artist was rediscovered.
