Sergey Akopov was born in 1956 in Tbilisi. In 1983 he graduated from the Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts. Since 1993 he lives and works in Moscow. He is a member of the Union of Artists of Russia and the International Association of Arts at UNESCO since 1998. His works can be found in private collections across Europe, the United States, Canada and China.
Sergey Akopov commenced his career leaning towards impressionism, post-impressionism and expressionism, influenced by the abstract and moderate avant-garde genres.
Towards the mid-90s the artist turns to the Flemish and Dutch art of painting and discovers the world of still life. He creates his own style, with gentleness and sensitivity, where the play of light and darkness prevails.
At the same time Sergey Akopov retains his interest in the moderate avant-garde and developed an expressive style that leads him to a new interpretation of the city or biblical themes.
