Summary/Abstract: Very often the artistic creativity of Sirak Skitnik is revealed as an inaccessible phenomenon that grows up in bizarre manner within the intellectual circles of St. Petersburg. In the article many new facts have been published for the first time revealing a more logical line of the artist’s development. Having received his first lessons in painting by his uncle Georgi Gulmezov in his hometown Sliven, Panayot went to study further at the Samokov School of Theology, where his teacher in art was Nikola Georgiev. Common characteristics of the early artistic attempts of Sirak Skitnik and of his relative, who has been among the first students at the State School of Drawing in Sofia (1896), are given. The authors of the text examine also some interesting moments of the artist’s schooldays in Samokov, by publishing a complete list of his classmates. A significant part of the teaching team were traced, whose courses he attended for four years. Those were years in which he went on painting. And though the nephew had travelled far from Georgi Gyulmezov, in 1900– 1902 the lessons learned from him still show through.
