Oleg Tselkov
B.1934
STILL LIFE WITH WINE GLASS
signed in Cyrillic, titled in Latin and dated '1988' on the stretcher
oil on canvas

Psychedelic neon colors are the hallmark of Tselkov’s paintings, increasingly so as his painting style matured. Fittingly perhaps for the vibrant palette he came to be known for, his first solo show took place at the Kurchatov Institute of Atomic Energy. It was shut down by the authorities after two days for being socially unacceptable. Tselkov emigrated to France in 1977.
