Nurbiy Lovpaçe was born in the family of an officer in the city of Grozny in 1937. He lived in North Ossetia until 1964 where he first lost his heart to Caucasus Mountains. He finished his studies at the Leningrad Repin Art Institute and settled in Adygea. He lectured at various higher education institutions in Adygea. He is a member of the Union of Russian Painters and owns the title of the Art Worker of the Republic of Adygea. An expert of fine arts, archaeologist and educator; Nurbiy Lovpaçe is an important figure in the artistic and social life of Adygea.
The paintings of Nurbiy Lovpaçe bear traces of the tradition of national painting. They are independent of strict academic standards, demonstrate powerful expression and dynamism and are embedded in cult symbols and cryptic texts.
The seemingly frozen landscape in Lovpaçe's paintings in which he depicts the mountainous countryside of Adygea reveals the spirit of the cosmos. The world painted in his works must have been the same a thousand years ago. Lovpaçe is sensitive to the inner life of the environment, pursues the hidden magic of objects unnoticeable at cursory glance and is capable of animating those objects. The traces of his dream of an exuberant and profuse life are seen in both his romantic landscapes and works depicting the Nart saga or mythological narratives. He uses a decorative style full of codes which prompts the viewer to use their imagination and reflect on his works. Lovpaçe transforms painting into a philosophical conception method based on tradition and integrates it with the pre-Islamic beliefs of Adyghe people. He points out to the futility of rendering objects exactly as they are but also underscores the necessity to analyze their interrelationship through painting. No wonder there is light in his paintings - the painter Lovpaçe is trying to see the divine Universe.
