About the artist
Most of his early years Sergej spent by traveling around the world, first as a sailor then as businessman. Since his retirement Sergej has set up a new artist’s career, pursuing his real love as a full time painter.
At present Sergej is a member of Western Lithuanian Artists Association and Wimbledon Open Art Studios Community, working at his studios in London and Lithuania.
Most of Sergej’s masterpieces are made exclusively by pallet knife and show great artist’s passion, called himself as hooked on colours. That’s why, all his exceptional quality art works have a remarkable content of vibrant colours, joy of life, and energy of well being.
Sergej’s first presentations in UK were in 2013 in London by solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Association of Ukranians of Great Britain. During the last few years the artist was presented at the several international Art Fairs in Monaco, New York, London and Hong Kong.
In August 2014 Sergej participated at “Spirit of Art Vienna 2014″ international museum quality exhibition at MOYA-Museum of Young Art in Vienna, Austria.
This year several of Sergej’s artworks were featured by the one of the leading international galleries “SAATCHI ART” in their “Inspired by impressionism” collection.
Recently, his artwork was chosen by selection Committee for London Biennale 2015.
Sergei Ovcharuk (Sulima) was born in 1963 in Lviv, Ukraine, studied at Khmelnitskiy school of arts.
Sergei is a dreamer and a romantic, with the soul of a sailor and the delicate hands of an artist. Sergei’s paintings offer a fresh view on the classic style, and immerse us in the mysteriously spiritual world of impressionism. The amazing combination of the old master’s painting traditions with expressive colors awakens imagination and leads to deep philosophical thinking.
In 1982 Sergei met an outstanding master-colorist Vladimir Borodin and became his student for further 4 years. As Sergei is saying, this was a determining event in his 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.
Sergei 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. For his impressionistic paintings, master purely uses a pallet knife. For painter- colorist , he says , the pallet knife technique is the best to reflect the colour emotions of his own soul.
