Sergey Sergeev, in his own words:
“I believe that each work carries more information than what can be seen. My works include allegories and generalizations, therefore deciphering them is a matter of ambiguity. I prefer to avoid literal interpretations, since my graphic compositions have multiple meanings and subtexts.”
