A solid classical formation gave SERGE the experience required to be able to 'see' the transcendental core of things and start his quest in abstract. Many artists such as Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall and Kazimir Malevich moved in this direction to reflect the depth of our world more clearly. For SERGE, the realistic world is truly beautiful... but being able to see and translate its inner beauty into abstract is his main task as a visual artist.
"There is a hidden enigma that only a few things are capable of unveil, reminding us about the primary mystery of the Universe: its essence. The world is filled with invisible energy; everything radiates vibrations of different frequencies and wavelengths... including ourselves. However, only two magnitudes can reveal its existence: Colour and Sound.
Of the vast spectrum of the universal energy, Colour and Sound alone are recognizable by our perceptual senses. Other wavelengths are not. Colour and Sound are the ultimate reminders that everything is an infinite ocean of flowing energies, some known and some unknown to us.
Only rivaled by Sound, Colour provides a delightful way of learning about the interconnectedness, oneness, and unity of all matter around us."
Hailing from Toronto since 2005, SERGE BUSHCHYK graduated from the College of Art after 16 years of mastering classical fine arts in his native Minsk, Belarus. His father Mikalai Bushchyk, a well known Belarusian artist, taught him to see the world as an artist. SERGE have showcased his artwork at the UN, the Native American House Gallery in NYC, the Museum of Contemporary Russian Art in New Jersey, and won a second prize at the 58th Annual Colour and Form Society exhibit. His art can be found at the State Museum of Contemporary Art of Belarus, the Museum of Contemporary Russian Art in Jersey City, and private collections in Belarus, Russia, Germany, USA, and Canada.
