Oil on canvas, 60" x 48".
Sergey’s signature style allows his work to be recognized immediately. His beautiful landscapes and seascapes have earned him the Muse Award in 2007 for the “Best in Oils” at the highly-acclaimed international ARTV Awards. Among his many honors, Sergey holds the title of professor at the Accademia del Verbanzo in Italy.Born in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) in 1969, Sergey began studying art as a young child. At the age of three, he developed meningitis and became paralyzed, unable to walk or speak for several years. He attended a school for children with disabilities, and found comfort in painting. At age eight, he was enrolled in a preschool for artists and went on to attend college at the prestigious Serovo Art Institute. In early 1992, at the age of 21, he left his family and everything familiar to come to America to find the artistic freedom he so desired. Unable to speak any English, he found a job cleaning bathrooms and collecting trash in a government building in Atlanta, making $125 a week. He learned to speak English by using a Russian/English dictionary as he listened to others speak and read the newspaper. One day, Sergey showed his artwork to his manager, who invited him to sell his artwork in the cafeteria. He sold three paintings during his first American show. His career has grown exponentially since then, and his work is now in many acclaimed galleries and public, corporate and private collections.
