Sergey Tyukanov

I was born on the island Sakhalin, in a small town Poronaisk, situated on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. My childhood years passed far away from so-called "civilization" and the only window to the reality that I had were children’s' illustrated books.They became my fairy tale world which, although I have grown up, I do not want to depart with even today. The world of brushes, pencils, watercolors, and miscellaneous bottles with inks and paints, which I endlessly love, have become for me a theatre, where I organize everything in my specific order and create a spectacle to amuse myself. In this theatre I am the director, the actor and the viewer at the same time.
