Serge Marshennikov was born in 1971 in Ufa in the USSR. Serge painted from a very young age, and his mother encouraged his study of art, arranging private lessons and studies in art studios.
After winning awards for his paintings as a child, Serge went on to graduate from Ufa Art College in 1995, and then graduated from the renowned Repin Academy of Fine Art in St. Petersberg, Russia.
Marshennikov’s hyperrealist paintings of women in interior spaces are heavily influenced by the mid-twentieth century American artist Andrew Wyeth.
Early works have been successfully sold through important art auctions, including famous Christie’s of London and Bonham’s in Knightsbridge. Later he changed to collaborate with art-galleries, most of which are concentrated in the USA. Currently lives and works in his studio in St. Petersburg, Russia.
