Artist Sergey George Klychkov was born on the 16th of August 1968 in Moscow, Russia in a Professor’s family. Being a grandson of repressed and murdered back in 1937 Russian poet of Silver Age Sergey Antonovich Klychkov, Sergey was named after his grandfather.
Painting experiments began during his secondary school time when he joined a junior art studio of Alexander Schwartz in Moscow in mid 1980s. Sergey did not continue his art studies after school because his family insisted on a linguistic education and in 1985 he was admitted in Moscow Linguistic University where he studied till 1992 and graduated as an interpreter.
For the next few years Sergey travelled all over Russia and the World first as an interpreter and later as business developer for numerous international trading companies in the oil industry.

This included serias of portraits, modern view of the Bible subjects, illustrations, some fantasies.
