Serguei Zlenko was born in the Republic of Georgia in 1960. He studied at the Russian Academy in Moscow and later obtained a Master in Fine Art from Surikov Art Academy in 1984.
Born in Georgia in 1960, Serguei Zlenko is a classically trained artist whose works represent the school of traditional Russian painting. His works include, amongst other things, topographical landscapes, classic ballet dancer motifs and figurative portraits of people, animals and events. Zlenko is inspired by a vast array of topics, which can be seen in his multidimensional artworks. In his portraits, Zlenko succeeds in capturing a natural and spontaneous moment which makes his paintings almost photolike. His extensive academic training is visible in the different techniques he masters and the unusual visual angles and asymmetrical ordonnances he uses. In his ballet paintings, Zlenko pictures not only the elegance and glorious postures of the ballerinas but also the life backstage with concentration before a show and all the physical struggles. Most of Zlenko’s works are oil paintings, but he also works with water colours and pastel. Serguei Zlenko has studied in the Russian Art Academy’s Art School and the Surikov Art Academy in Moscow. His art is shown in galleries and collections all over Europe and the United States
In 1993, Serguei was invited to become a member of the Finnish Artists’ Association, and, later in 1996, the Russian Artists’ Association. His most recent exhibitions include the Fletcher Gallery in New York; Galerie Horhammer, Helsinki; Museum of Applied Art, Finland; Gallery Art Encounter, Las Vegas; and Sala Barna Gallery in Barcelona.
Serguei Zlenko belongs to a generation of Russian painters whose creativity falls in the critical period at the turn of the century. In this respect it proves to be very important to preserve the conception of inviolable aesthetic values in our rapidly changing world.
Serguei’s choice of subject matter is extensive; including ballet dancers both in preparation for and during performance; portraiture and landscape in the plein-air tradition. His approach also fluctuates between realism and surrealism.
