Sergei Goloshapov, a Moscow born artist, has rocketed to the top echelon of traditional printmakers and book illustrators during his senior years at MoscowPolygraph Institute, the renowned Russian art school. Many of the best 20th-century avant-garde artists have taught there developing the glorious tradition of Constructivism, the rich early post-revolution style in art and architecture.

 

During his years in Russia Sergei has produced a large body of work including numerous book illustrations, etchings, paintings in oil, and works on paper.

 

In 1991 Sergei moved to NewYork where he continued to work on illustrated books for children (North-SouthPublishing). The most important were two outstanding books of Grimm Brothers tales. Later on, he created a linocut print series forThe Selected Short Stories of Honore de Balzac. 

 

In 2012Sergei was involved in a major theatre project  -The Spiderman on Broadway.

He was responsible for the entire cityscape rendering.

Now the artist back to his studio working on a new series of paintings and mixed media drawings.
