Sergej Ovcharuk’s exhibition at the Ice House Gallery features new 2015 “Music of the rain” cycle and more other new works.
Sergej Ovcharuk was born in 1963, in Lviv, Ukraine. He graduated from the Khmelnitskiy school of arts in 1980. His youthful romanticism led him to wander to the walls of the oldest marine alma-mater, LVIMU (now State Marine Academy) in St.Peterburg, Russia. However the influence of this historical city, one of the world centers of the arts and culture, again aroused in him the strongest desire toward creativity, and to the further study of painting.
Meeting with an outstanding master-colorist Vladimir Borodin in 1982 and further 4 years studies in his studio was a determining event in Sergei’s life. A combination of the romantic-symbolic sense of the world and passion for color became the foundation of Sergei’s professional development as a painter.
Sergej dedicated his efforts over many years to uncovering the secrets and technical skills of the Golden Century’s old Holland masters (17c.), which had strengthened, inspired and broadened his creative base. And thus his personal, intimate philosophical world of the simple but deep life’s stories was born: “The world of the talking things” in the still life genre.
However, the romantic component of the artist’s soul inevitably led him to impressionism, where the foundation of Sergei’s creativity met expression and harmony of colour, which constantly attract us with their dazzling newness and unpredictability.
He participated in the collective and personal art exhibitions in USA, Great Britain, Monaco, Switzerland , Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine, as well as “Art-Gallery of V. Borodin”, St, Petersburg, Russia.
His paintings are represented in the private collections in USA, Canada, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, and Ukraine.
This exhibition is in association with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Parks Service.
