About the artist
Nicolas Bouteneff is essentially a self taught artist. Love of nature, a passion for colors,
and the desire to capture the beauty of lights and spaces around him, have put him in a deeper
search for creativity and dynamics of light.
He attended a studio under the guide of Shishka Bogush in London for a year,
and he took art courses at the City University of New York.
He paints mostly landscapes en plein air in oils, but occasionally he may shift to watercolors and acrylics.
He is very active with the Plein Air Painters of New York.
He attended a week long workshop with Stephen Quiller, in Acadia, Main.
He now attends the Art Students League in New York under Gregg Kreutz.
Frank Mason, Karen O’Neil, were also his mentors.
He resides in New York City.
