Direction of activity: monumental art, painting, graphic arts, sculpture. Sergey Savchenko is one of the brightest nonconformists in Odessa, an active member of the Odessa Group of Artists and the Creative Association Mamay. A complicated and at the same time a harmonious color vision of the master, a plastic sense of color, individual sensitivity to the grip of his various spatial-volume transitions – the basis of Sergei Savchenko abstractions embodied in painting, easel graphics and sculpture. In the early 1980s, he actively joined the group of Odessa nonconformists. The artist is beautifully in the color and turns it into violent, emotional abstract work – peculiar color meditations. So to experience the whole spectrum of white, to study its structure, to cover its tone and semitone, and to create its versions, perhaps, only Savchenko. His paintings want to watch all the time – they balance emotions, harmonize the soul, enlighten thoughts. Joy in his work – quiet and pure, sadness – bright, life drama – deep and noble.
