Presentation

“All his works betrayed a certain eroticism – an eroticism so overwhelming

that it could only be attributed to Satan himself,

or worse, to a force even greater than Satan,

to something infinitely more awesome and terrifying…” – Nicholas Kalmakoff

Nicholas Kalmakoff (Nikolay Kalmakov) was a Russian symbolic artist whose work is characterised by motifs dealing with spirituality, occultism and sexuality. He led the life of a hermit and died in obscurity.
