Serge Mendjisky (1929 - 2017)
Serge Mendjisky was a French painter (1929 – 2017). He became familiar with art at an early age as his father, Maurice Mendjisky, was a painter at the ‘Ecole de Paris’.
He studied Fine Arts in Paris. He quickly gained recognition and started to exhibit in Europe, Japan, and the USA.
His method consists of using photographs for his preliminary studies. He breaks down and recomposes the landscapes of the biggest city capitals in the world. As such, the artist creates new urban landscapes questioning our perception.
His work is included in the collections of many established private collections and also in public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.
