"Sergey, born in 1975, grew up in Rodniki, a little town in the Ivanovo region, 300 km north-east of Moscow in the Former Soviet-Union. Already in his childhood his exceptional talent for drawing and painting stroke his teachers. He won several contests, and was deemed to be send to the Academy of Arts in Moscow. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the chaos that resulted from this crossed all plans and dreams.
After a few years of work in different jobs in Russia Sergey decided to seek opportunities elsewhere and moved to Istanbul. There, he had his first commercial successes. His paintings were sold in a little gallery called ‘Les Arts Turcs’. We lost track where these paintings are now. For sure two are still on display in the visiting rooms a small arts and craftsmen’s gallery near Sultan Ahmed in Istanbul."
"Sergey moved to Belgium in 2003. One can imagine the huge contrast between life in an isolated old industrial little town in the post-soviet era, somewhere in Russia and western European cities. This balancing between cultures is probably the most typical property of Sergey’s actual work. One can find elements that go back to his very traditional roots and others that reflect the life style of the Facebook generation of the 21st century. This also explains the sometimes abrupt changes of style, only depending on the inspiration of the very moment.
Sergey attended with great success some master classes (SLAC-Academy of Arts in Leuven) where he improved some techniques (like oil on canvas).
Most of his works, of which a number are displayed on this website, are held in private collections throughout the globe, Singapore, United States, Cyprus, Turkey, Russia, France, Spain …. Some canvasses are still held by the artist and are available for exhibitions and fairs. "
If you have a special request, a need for a personal and original piece of art for your home or office, you can always contact Sergey to discuss possibilities and terms.
Some of Sergey’s work is exhibited on this website. On Sergey’s Facebook page Art of My Fantasy almost weekly new work is available.
