Sergei Sologub's paintings lead the viewer into surrealist imagery, into imaginative, unpredictable landscapes.

Sergei Sologub has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His works have been shown in Prague (Czech Republic), London (United Kingdom), New York (USA), Mallorca (Spain), Knokke (Belgium), Cologne, Münster (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Brussels (Belgium) and Yekaterinburg (Russia).Masquer
