Biography

Boris Sarikov has been working for the revival of the unique art tradition – the Thracian toreutics since 1989. He has 8 years of research in the area of the antique metal craftsmanship on gold and silver. Sarikov is sculptor and interior designer with more than 20 years of experience in different styles, techniques, and many different materials like steel, copper, gold, silver, bronze, brass, different sorts of stone, wood, clay, plaster, wax and more. He has good knowledge of art bronze casting. The area of interior design is a big interest to him, especially the doors, because they are a very important architectural detail as he said. The custom art doors in metal and stained glass are a distinctive feature in his personal ideas in the design of art works. His concept in the interior design is closer to the fine arts, than the standart decoration. He uses the best techniques from Antiquity through the Renaissance and up to the Modern art. His works are possessions of the Belgian royal family and private collectors from Paris, New York, Zurich, Munich, Osaka, etc. "My first sculpture was created when I was 7, it was a statue of a woman made of walnut wood. Even though it was decades ago I can still remember the smell of the wood, which for me was the scent of life. Through out the years lifes distractions and routines prevented me from creating my art, but my passion for art was still present, and the fire inside of me to create grew ferocious. There's many factors that inspires artist to create, but for me it’s a primal instinct, something that comes as a second nature. I create my designs using many different materials such as : gold, silver,iron,bronze stone, and clay. I never wanted to be skilled in only one field or technique. That's why I made it a priority to master different skills and techniques. I strongly believe that every artist should have passion in every design that he/she creates, because the art is a reflection of the artists, if a piece lacks passion it also lacks personality. No matter how extraordinary or simple a piece I create is, the thing that gives me the most fulfillment is the expression of joy while a customer or a spectator gazes at my craft."
