Sergey Markofken is a renowned artist working in one of the most dynamically developing contemporary art directions — Spin Art.
His workshops are located in St. Petersburg and Dubai.
Sergey Markofken creates conceptual art projects, constantly experimenting with the forms and possibilities of artistic material.
However all these objects spin not randomly, but strictly following a specified trajectory defined by the artist, which makes it possible to create a masterpiece that exactly conveys the emotional state of the author.
Sergey Markofken presents his works at domestic and foreign exhibitions, auctions, conducts show performances and lectures on contemporary art, cooperates with charitable organizations.
Despite the fact that the first mentionings of Spin Art date back to the fifties of the last century, this contemporary art direction has been significantly developing only recently. Since the 1960s, Spin Art has been featured in the works of contemporary artists such as Alfons Schilling, Annick Gendron and Lawrence Stafford. Moreover, one of the richest painters of our days – Damien Hirst – used this technique in his works.
«The idea of creating this work came up as a protest against the background of constant contradictions occurring because of the increasing discrimination of rights of various social groups in recent years: ethnical, gender, religious, racial, sexual and etc.
Over the centuries people have always been brought together in different groups, identified by common interests, views and principles. And they united primarily against each other. Just as bright and completely different colors on canvas lie in mutual tolerance and harmony next to each other, so completely different social groups can coexist with each other avoiding discrimination and infringement of the rights of minorities of any kind…»
