Igor Novikov blends in his paintings diverse techniques, styles and time levels. As background he often applies classical paintings from the world heritage of fine arts, in particular master pieces of Russian painters of the 19th century. He replicates these works while alienating them superficially with graphical figures or pictograms. This gives to the paintings surprising and often ironic relationships to real life and current situations. Thus his works become testimonies of the transition of the Soviet Union to modern Russia, but also of Swiss or European issues. This contradiction of well-known classics and modern alienation results in strong messages and effects.
