Nicolas Bouteneff Fine Art

New York, NY



Nicolas Bouteneff is essentially a self taught artist. Love of nature, a passion for the colors, and the desire to capture the beauty of spaces around him, have put him in a deeper search for creativity and inspiration on dynamics of light. His primary medium is oil (although he uses watercolors and acrylics). His aesthetic resonates mostly in still lifes and En Plein Air landscapes.

He grew up in France on a farm. Walking to school with his brother in various seasons, they crossed many lovely orchards, vineyards, pastures, woods, and streams. During summers, they went climbing in the Alps, swimming in the Atlantic Ocean near Biarritz, and visiting the center of France, which still remains relatively unchanged since the medieval ages. This exposure to the outdoors gave him a profound attachment to all aspects of nature.

Repeated visits to major galleries in various capitals in Europe and the US, taught Nicolas to appreciate the creativity of the great masters. In addition, he attended a studio under the guide of Zizka Bogush in London. He participated in a workshop with Stephen Quiller, in Acadia, Maine. He has taken art courses at the City University of New York. He is an active member of the Plein Air Painters of New York. He recently switched from representational to Abstract painting with great excitement. He currently studies at the Art Students League in New York City with Gregg Kreutz, Thomas Torak, Costa Vavagiakis. Frank O'Cain.
