Masters of watercolors/Sergey Kurbatov

I was born in Budapest in 1970
Graduated Academy of Applied Arts in St.-Petersburg, Russia, in 1993.
After graduation worked for a long time as a graphic designer and animator in St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk.
The period from 2000 to 2008 is taken as "Charging the Battery". It was a gradual accumulation of energy, knowledge and experience. My watercolors of this time are mostly detailed landscapes and still lifes. At this time I don't think about selling my art, the work of the designer provides the means to life. painting watercolors "for myself" gave independence in subjects and style. As well as the time required for the experiment and finding my own creative language.
Since 2009, the watercolor becomes a major part of my career. This period is "Recoil of energy" and simultaneous "Recharging". It was the time of the first exhibitions of Novosibirsk. Creative visit to Montenegro, where outdoor classes for beginner artists were held. Watercolor workshops and classes in Novosibirsk. Participation in international watercolor Biennale in France, prizes, publications. Joint exhibition with Masha Kurbatova in Holland in 2013. Regular plein air trips with fellow artists in Russia and abroad; Crimea, Altai, Southern Kazakhstan, etc. Currently, in addition to painting watercolors, I engaged also in teaching activities: periodically hold watercolor workshops in Novosibirsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, abroad.
