Tell us a little bit about your label (art) and what you do?
Sergey Litvinov is an emerging artist based in Sydney, who’s paradigm values in art are bringing joy and warmth to people’s hearts.
His practice is very thorough and dedicated. Paintings of different subjects and sizes are all complete with the same professional quality. His colourist, yet realistic style melds perfectly with such versatility.
His skills within his practice, his knowledge and control of painting, and his ability to connect to your hearts and emotions will promise a stunning, meaningful work you will be more than happy with. A set of skills with strong colour-mixing, extensive layering and high tiered detailing is always present when creating another uplifting, happy work of art. Sergey’s work brings you an artwork that is to the highest standards and lights up your heart!
What inspires your work?
The one thing that inspires my work time after time is showing the best human emotions on canvas; love, comfort and joy. I try to bring those in no matter the concept! It’s always great to bring in even a little bit of happiness in a life.
What jobs have you done other than being an artist?
Aside from the artistry, I have also created the business Art Potential, an organisation which focuses on bringing happy art to any and all; either in form of art lessons or my own art. As an extension of Art Potential, I also run a social art group for mental patients where I teach to be free with art!
