Serge Marshennikov’s hyperrealist oil paintings are utterly captivating. Languorous female figures are painted with a delicate sensitivity, they lie supine, swathed in skeins of lace. This consistency of style belies Marshennikov’s scholastic understanding of Russian visual culture: his elfin models could have strayed from the pages of Turgenev or Lermontov, but remain anchored in the present by a photographic intensity. Serge Marshennikov is a Russian artist born in Ufa in 1971. Marshennikov studied at one of the most prestigious art academies in the world, The Repin Academy of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, Russia. As one of the most talented graduates of the academy he conducted his postgraduate studies under the personal tutelage of the Rector of the Academy, Professor Milnikov.
