Late evening landscape with the last rays of sun shining over the water through the heavy cloud cover. This large format oil painting get the new impression with the copper gilding. Instead of painting water with the reflections of the sky I use natural color and reflective quality of real copper. It gives the painting the sense of the motion by subtly reflecting surrounding lights and motion.
It’s me - Andrew V. Sechin – artist and creative director for over 30 years. I was born, raised, and trained in Moscow, Russia. In 1984, I completed my Masters in Fine Art and Visual Communication at the Moscow Academic Art College, at which point I chose to pursue a career in design, building brands internationally. That did not stop me from painting – rather the contrary. Traveling abroad and working for clients all over Europe afforded me the opportunity to visit some of the most illustrious and exquisite museums and arts galleries in the world. Thus, although I pursued a career in graphic design, my true passion has always been painting. I won the International Art Contest in Sofia, Bulgaria and received numerous regional and national awards in Russia, including the Art Publishers Award in St. Petersburg in 1998. My art is on display in several private collections in San Francisco, South Orange, Chicago, New York, Moscow and Frankfurt, as well as in the permanent collections of Expo Bank and PepsiCo Russia in Moscow. Hope you enjoy.
