Original artworks, prints, exhibition posters, monographs, books, collectibles.

In 1960, for the first time, I painted a canvas with two strange, pinkish-white faces. Suddenly I had a feeling that there was something in those faces, that I had found a path I could continue to travel…
Though actively participating in the artistic life of the underground, Oleg Tselkov rarely showed his works at unofficial nonconformist exhibitions, which took place in private flats, in scientific and research institutes, and in culture-houses. This is why, in the 1970s, he participated neither in the famous "bulldozer exhibition" nor in the exhibition "in Izmailovo"…
