About Serge Lis Eliseev


Artist Serge Lis Eliseev
With his work LAZARUS
In his Studio.

Serge Lis Eliseev was born in Sakhalin Island in 1954 and moved to Saint-Petersburg in 1961. He is chemist engineer. He was musician, karate instructor, customs officer and driver during his life. His main hobbies were music and sport. He was a drummer and singer in Rock band “Long Distance”. Serge found a camera in 2000 after his father’s death and he became interested in black-and-white photography. It was his first step in art. He was admitted a member of the Union of artists of Russia in 2005 as photographer.
Serge experimented a lot with coloring black-and-white prints with acrylic and aniline in 2013-2014. It was the result that he began to create oil painting on canvas in February 2015
Being a self-taught and self-represented artist gives him the freedom and proficiency to express himself with oils and other mediums, his work has evolved through his own personal experience. The internet has always been his greatest source of information and techniques. He strives to improve his craft with every new portrait or fantasy picture he paints.

Artist Statement
I was a rock musician, a karate coach, a photographer.
In 2015, I tried to color my black-and-white print with aniline dyes.
The result looked like an oil painting on canvas.
I tried to paint the subject of one of my photos on canvas and have been painting oil paintings ever since
Every work is a STEP FORWARD!
I use of new techniques, tools and materials in the work.
My inspiration is significant events in the life of the country and world cataclysms.
As a photographer in the past, I used some of my photographic works as the basis for future paintings.
The creating of process is similar to the Jam Session in jazz — a constant free improvisation
My slogan, as the old karate Masters used to say: DESIRE, PATIENCE, EXERCISE

Artist Statement 2020

Every work is a STEP FORWARD!
I use of new techniques, tools and materials in the work.
My inspiration is significant events in the life of the country and world cataclysms.
As a photographer in the past, I used some of my photographic works as the basis for future artworks.
The creating of process is similar to the Jam Session in jazz — a constant free improvisation ( I'm a rock musician in the past)
My slogan, as the old karate Masters used to say: DESIRE, PATIENCE, EXERCISE

Artist statement:
I’m a member of The Union of Artists of Russia since 2005. I began to paint in oil on canvas in February of 2015. My painting is like jazz. I improvise in the creative process from the beginning to the end (as I am musician in the past) - with paints, tools and composition. Each new work is an impromptu and a new step forward in the sound of my Art orchestra. I like the vivid palette and mostly use white, red, blue, yellow and brown colors, mixing them spontaneously in the creative process. I like as well large formats in the range from 70 to 100 cm or more and fine Italian canvas. I do large smear, using a large brush and palette knife. The basis of my art is a photo taken by me when I was photographer. Sometimes on the Internet I see interesting photos. I save them to my computer, and then create new paintings based on them. My fantasies often turn into my pictures. I create one picture a week, usually on Saturdays. During the week, I think about the next picture, and when I come to my Studio, it's ready in my head, and I have only to realize it on the canvas. Often when I paint a portrait, an animal, tango or something else, it seems to me that some fantastic faces and figures as ghosts look at me from the depth of the canvas and ask me to paint them.
