Artist Sergey George Klychkov was born on the 16th August 1968 in Moscow, Russia in a Professor’s family. Being a grandson of repressed and murdered back in 1937 Russian poet Sergey Antonovich Klychkov, Sergey was named after his grandfather.
Painting experiments began in the secondary school when he joined a junior art studio of Alexander Schwartz in Moscow in mid 1980s. Sergey did not continue his art studies after school because his family insisted on a linguistic education and in 1985 he was admitted in Moscow Linguistic University where he studied till 1992 and graduated as an interpreter.
For the next few years Sergey travelled all over Russia and the World first as an interpreter and later as business developer for numerous international trading companies in the oil industry. Sergey Klychkov returned to art only in the mid of 2000 when he was already an established and a family man. His portfolio by now consists of over 120 oil-on-canvas pieces.
