AN EXPERIMENTING PROVACATEUR
Ricken has been working with Sergei Sviatchenko since 1999 and have through that period worked on several kinds of projects spanning both exhibitions and corporate interior decoration.
Sviatchenko is known for working with a broad range of subjects and media. He experiments, challenges, and abolishes where other artists move within established comfort zones. From his early work as a conceptual artist and collage maker, he moved on to abstract painting and has done commissions and large-scale murals for international brands and institutions. More recently, Sviatchenko has created the fashion-forward photography project Close Up and Private, which looks to capture the spirit of modern style, as seen through the subtle shades of the individual.
As a provocateur in the world of contemporary art, Sviatchenko’s collages and paintings have been exhibited in Denmark, Germany, Italy, France, England, Canada, and the USA.
