I couldn’t find to much about Sergey except he was born in 1958 in Russia which was pretty much obvious judging from his style and technique.
And that he’s living in Prague for almost 20 years already.
Sergey is displaying about three distinct styles. Some of his works, like this superb view of Prague, are reminding me of Anna Kryukova:
While others like like this extraordinary post impressionist piece, again a Prague cityscape remind me of Van Gogh:
But the one I really love is this:
What a fantastic array of textures, what a range of tones form the softest earth tones of the sky to the bold reds and greens of the bridge and buildings.
Have a look at the sun, the pale yellows spot, negligently shaped in the upper right corner. Its yellow descends softly into a shade of ochre which covers the entire sky, as if the sky is just an extension of the sun.
Only fine hints are left to the original color of the sky and they do look bluish in the the middle of earthly tones he used for the sky. But that is so far from blue.
Look at the pale blue / green patch in the upper left. Try to take it out of context to understand it properly. It is a soft khaki color so appropriate in the context, so unexpected otherwise.
The bottom part of the painting must be water. For once it reflects the sun. It reflects the entire sky actually, and the ochre colors are even darker, almost brown.
In the middle part we probably see 2 church towers, some tall roofs in the background and a bridge to the right.
They are so vague, so unclear in their fuzzy shapes, you cannot tell for sure but compare them to the sky, the sun and the water. They do feel clearly outlined in comparison, don’t they?
Here are some more works.
He has a website which seems to be work in progress. Last time I have looked the website didn’t exist yet. Pay him a visit, there are a lot more artworks there, definitely worth a look.
Most importantly, you can buy his art online. You will probably find the prices suprisingly low.
