Igor Tarnov (1965 – 2005) was a modern artist. He hailed from Bogoroditsk, Tula Region in Russia, He spent most of his life in Tula till death in 2005. His artworks depict realism, practicality, and his immediate environment. His paintings detailed accurate depiction of the nature of contemporary life. During his lifetime, Tarnov has credits to a sizable number of artworks. They all favor close observation of the outward appearance of his surroundings.
One of his reputed artwork is his painting of the famous Nikolskaya Street in Moscow. The street had always been a significant part of the Moscow Business hub. It used to be home to many local noblemen in Russia. Nikolskaya street is not that long but every building on the street has a great story attached to it. A famous hotel and restaurant “Slavyansk Bazar” used to be around the corner. The street also hearts the establishment of Moscow Theater Hub. A venue of naturalistic theater.
Furthermore, the painting reflects the old view of the street. Rusty old buildings and mild snow hills, and black trees without leaves. The representations in the painting reveal the time setting of the artwork. Most likely around the spring in October. Currently, Nikolskaya Street has evolved with the current tide of development. It seems more vibrant than it used to be when Tarnov experienced it. The street is now pedestrianized. Now it has benches around making it a nice place to chill and experiencing the heart of the city.
Finally, Tarnov’s painting of Nikolskaya Street, Moscow looks perfect on the wall. It makes one feel nostalgic to experience the old vibe of the street.
