Sergey Ovseykin

Sergey Ovseykin

Sergey Ovseykin was born in 1988 in Moscow, where he graduated from the university with a degree in graphic design in 2011.
In 2002, he formed the creative association of street artists named ZUKCLUB, the leader of which remains to this day. Many large-scale murals around the world, as well as the organization of the first Russian festival of street art Street Art Week in 2009, were created by the art group.

Since 2012, Ovseykin has been participating alone or together with ZUKCLUB in international festivals, residencies and projects, including Desvelarte in Santander, Black River in Vienna, Arte Urbano in Switzerland, Into the Valley in Estonia, Gorilla in Tulum, Carte Blanche in Yekaterinburg, etc. It should be also mentioned the work with the Department of Moscow, in which the projects “Russian Avant-garde” and “Heritage” were organized with the portraits of cultural and art figures (Einstein, Stravinsky, Rodchenko, Bulgakov, etc.) In Vyksa for the Industrial Park project, the artist created a large-scale mural based on the work of Eric Bulatov. In 2022, together with Slava Ptrk Ovseykin organizes a satellite of the main program of the Carte Blanche street art festival in Israel.
Sergey Ovseykin’s artworks simultaneously refer to several recognizable trends, or even to certain artists at once. Moscow conceptualism gets along well with op-art, and De Chirico’s metaphysical painting finds a common language with Koons’ neo-pop. Moreover, the visual beauty and refinement of the drawing contrasts with its internal content, the theme of which is given deliberately straightforwardly.
In his art, Sergey Ovseykin offers a possible solution – to accumulate the potential formal capacity of already invented artistic directions. According to the author: “The best style is the absence of style, because in this way it is impossible to become its hostage”. With the condition that each work has a certain meaning, united by a common theme, a completely different view of what the author’s manner of modern artistic vision can be is born from this “patchwork quilt”.
Often the main characters of Ovseykin’s art are people, animals, angels, homeless people, the media and many other images that somehow make you think about the world and the place of a person in it. Plunging into the associative series proposed by the artist, we discover the world of irony, humor and energy that he invests in his works through paint.
The artist lives and works in Tel Aviv currently.
