Sergei Arhipov was born in Salmi, Russian republic of Karelia.
In 1998 he moved to Finland from Murmansk, Russia.
The first personal exhibition of his art-works was held in Murmansk Art Museum, Russia, in 1991. 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 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 in private collections in Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, USA, Czech, Great Britain, Greece, Finland and Russia.
