tr5Hi everyone and welcome to my blog!

My name is Sergey Gusev and I’m a Russian painter from Saint Petersburg. In my works I seek to combine old traditions, the traditions of the old masters, with a more modern approach to painting.

We are all persons who constantly are in motion, moving from one place to the other both physically and mentally. In my opinion our art should reflect that vibrance we experience in our lives. In order to continue to improve I have started this blog, to hopefully reach out for other creative people, to inspire and to be inspired and also to promote and sell my paintings.

Please feel free to comment, give advice or just ask any questions you might have, I will be more than happy to hear from you. Visit me on my website here

    You write as beautifully as you paint.

  14. I can see how closely you have studied Rembrandt, though your style is clearly your own. I too like your portraits best. Looking at these faces makes me feel like I know stories of what happened in their lives..

    Thanks Sergey for stopping by and liking my post — Update: Where I’ve Been. I enjoyed perusing your site and definitely see the Rembrandt in your work, but also your individuality. I love the landscape paintings and by far my favorite thus far is ‘Waterfall’. Probably because it depicts people white water rafting, which is my favorite past time. I am also go to pass your blog off to my sister as she loves to paint and draw and is a fan of Rembrandt, too.
