Last weekend in Moscow, in a popular Club-Café „Masterskaya", an exclusive master class of the famous painter, the corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Arts Nikas Safronov was held, during which he met with Estonian politicians, the Mayor of Mustvee Max Kaur and Deputy Nikolai Degtjarenko.
The Maestro remembered with warm words the Baltic States, including Estonia, and his successful exhibitions in Tallinn. The conversation was about his famous painting, the portrait of the first lady of Estonia Evelin Ilves. On this occasion, Nikas Safronov paid tribute to femininity and beauty of Mrs Ilves and asked to convey her cordial greetings.
During the master class, the honoured painter developed a creative idea to paint a portrait of the legendary Prime Minister of Estonia and Mayor of Tallinn Edgar Savisaar. The Estonian politicians supported this interesting idea, which will undoubtedly complement the rich collection of outstanding people portrayed by the Maestro.
The painter gave the Estonian politicians reproductions of the finest of his works for the year 2014. Max Kaur and Nikolai Degtjarenko invited Nikas Safronov to host next year an exhibition in Tallinn together with young and talented painting artists of Estonia.
Safronov has painted portraits of many politicians and public figures, artists of show business. The event was a part of a research and educational project of the Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund.
