Timur Novikov founded and led the ‘New Academicians’ movement which dominated the St Petersburg art scene in the 1990s. In the series ‘Horizons‘, from which this print is taken, he revisits the Russian folk motifs in the style of his earlier textile pieces in which he placed small iconic symbols in large fields of flat colour. His works are in the collections of Tate, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; V&A Museum, London.
