Schedule. Member of the Union of Artists of the USSR. People's Artist of Russia.

 

Born in 1935 in the village of Trostnikovka, Tula Region, in 1949 he moved with his family to the city of Kalinin (now Tver), where he received his elementary art education at the Children's Art School. He studied under the sculptor A.M. Speransky, artist I.T. Sinyakov, art historian N.F. Sudakova, for whom she still has feelings of respect and gratitude.

 

An important stage in the life of Nikolai Viktorovich was studying at the Yelets Art School, where acquaintance with an unusually talented artist V.S. Sorokin had a great influence on his further creative development and the choice of the direction in art that can be traced in the works of Dochkin until now. This is, above all, a commitment to the traditions of the Moscow school of painting. No less significant for the formation of the artist's worldview were the knowledge gained by him at the Moscow Regional Art School "In Memory of 1905".

 

The difficult years of study, service in the fleet, the artist began to work independently, kindly, and with understandable sadness. His memory miraculously keeps many impressions from meeting people, reading books, and the first picturesque experiences. Today Dochkin is a recognized master. His work is loved by the audience, understand his fellow artists, art historians do not overlook. In 1997 he was awarded the title of Honored Artist of Russia, and in 2005 he was awarded the title of People.
