Сергій ШАРШУН • Сергей ШАРШУН
Serge Charchoune was a Franco-Russian artist who moved at times in Dada, Cubist and Purist circles. ARTnews "introduced" Charchoune to the general public in 1960, the year of his first solo exhibition in the United States. Put off by the political elements of the Dadaist movement, Charchoune pursued an unapologetically ornamental style of abstract painting influenced by Spanish-Moorish art and the Russian icons.
