Los Angeles Chapter Facebook Group- August Artist of the Month: Nikita Budkov

Posted August 25, 2020

August Greetings! Our featured “artist of the month” is the talented painter, Nikita Budkov! This painting shown is named Don’t Break the Oath, Self-Portrait, Oil on Canvas, 16″ x 12″.

After moving from his hometown near Moscow and now residing in Glendale, this contemporary Russian-American artist began his enrollment as a foreign exchange student. His move allowed him to continue his studies at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art (LAAFA) and become a part of the CAC’s “mentorship” program. If you study Budkov’s works of art, his symbolic paintings are inspiration based on early folktales and science fiction adventures. You can check it out his canvases on his website → https://www.nikitabudkov.com/


Additionally, he was recently interviewed for the CAC’s new video series, State Of The Art, which can now be seen either on YouTube or by visiting the CAC website. Check it out the interview→  https://youtu.be/MGoVW6Q_vxo
