Sergey Ovseykin

Sergey Ovseykin

Sergey Ovseykin was born in 1988 in Moscow, where he graduated from the university with a degree in graphic de-sign 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 De-partment 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.
He describes his work as a metaphor for everyday life.
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, humour and energy that he invests in his works through paint.
As Ovseykin says: “The most important thing in art is its meaning. If there is no meaning in your work, then there is nothing for you to do here.”
The artist lives and works in Moscow currently.
