Alexeev Sergey works in the technique of oil painting and watercolor. Sergey Alekseev has practically no competitors in watercolor, which allows him to be called one of the best watercolorists in St. Petersburg. Watercolor is a very complex technique, it does not forgive mistakes, because, unlike oil, you can not take a mastichin and scrape off the top layer of paint..... To create a quality watercolor requires incredible skill and inexorable precision. Sergey Alekseev is exhibited rarely, seeing no special necessity in it, from what the index of ratio of price/quality is incredibly high. This is due to the fact that the painter has a number of collectors, admirers of talent, who buy paintings of the artist directly from the studio, often taking away canvases that have not yet dried ... From what Sergei has no need to conduct an active exhibition activity ... Currently lives and works in St. Petersburg. Member of the St. Petersburg Union of Artists since 2013.
