About the Artist NELYA-NAKI (Akimova) - Siberia is my homeland. Who was there in the winter, never forgets the vastness and purity of the snowy expanses. And, as a contrast, concrete structures rise among snow. This magic remains with you for the rest of your life. I want to convey it in my canvases. Prior to the beginning of the artist's career, I worked for more than 20 years at the international pharmaceutical company Servier. And I was the regional manager in Central Siberia with a population of over 10 million people over 10 years from this period. I have gained a great experience of communication with people of different ages and status (from young employees to professors and directors of clinics). This experience now helps me explore and display the emotions of people on my canvases. I dreamed of living in Prague since 2013 and five years later I left my job and moved with my family to this most beautiful and mystical city. Here I began my path as an artist. Now my artworks are presented in the Agora Gallery (It is one of the best galleries in New York). It is located in the heart of New York City’s renowned Chelsea art district, home to some of the world’s most prestigious galleries.
