After his paintings became the property of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the National Gallery of Fine Arts La Valletta, Malta, the Mimara Museum, Zagreb, Nikolay Yanakiev continues with his success. He became the first contemporary Bulgarian artist to sell his painting in one of the most prestigious auction houses - the Christie's. The auction took place in July 2017 in London and was a great success for the artist. His painting The Studio was sold at a price five times higher than originally announced by a foreign collector, participating in the auction on the phone. "It is a very pleasant and exciting opportunity, after so many individual and collective exhibitions, biennales and symposia at very prestigious museums and galleries not only in Europe, but around the globe, to exhibit my works in the Virtual Art Space of ArtWizard, where all borders have gone and we, the artists, have the unique opportunity to meet the collectors and admirers of our art directly, even in the most remote places of the earth.", says the artist.
