Creativity of the artist Sergey Y. Sudeikin, painting

After the October Revolution, the artist lived in the Crimea for two years, then a year in Tiflis and Baku, after which he emigrated to France – his path lay from Batumi, through Marseille, and in 1919 the artist moved to Paris. There he becomes a set designer: he collaborates with the Bat and Balaganchik theaters. The whole activity of these theaters was due to Sudeikin. D.Z. Kogan, who studied the heritage of the artist, notes that the creative principles of the artist largely influenced and determined the activities of the theater. “Here is a light genre with a claim to the meaningful“ fooling ”, and stylization, and lightweight grotesque, and the sharpness of shifts and displacements, and confusion of theater and life, truth and lies, and the combination of earthiness and sublimity.

In Paris, draws ballet performances for the troupe A. Pavlova (ballet “Fairy Dolls” and “Sleeping Beauty”). Participates in the Russian group exhibition in the Paris gallery “Dancy”. Continue reading
