Sergei Arhipov was born in Salmi, Russian Karelia.
In 1998 he moved from Murmansk, Russia, to Turku, Finland, and from 2008 he is living in Helsinki.
At first time Sergei presented his art-works on personal exhibition in 1991 in Murmansk Art Museum, in Russia. One year later he had an exhibition in Rovaniemi Art Museum, in Finland.
Sergei Arhipov is a member of artists group of TRIADA (Helsinki) and of Finlands naivist painter’s association.
- Naive style of painting demonstrates positive feelings and humor, it is open-hearted, clear and natural, so as the child game, or animal’s eyes, or the dome of the sky. Naive painting is a simple look to the complicated things, - Sergei says.
Arhipov’s works are there in private collections in Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, USA, Czech, Great Britain, Finland and Russia.
