Sergei Tchoban: Art and Architecture

Images Publishing

Sergei Tchoban

  • Hand-drawn perspectives and atmospheric images envisioning the ideas behind architectural projects represent a rare medium in the field of modern construction.

    Sergei Tchoban: Art presents a selection of over 200 drawings by Sergei Tchoban, Architekt BDA, that accompany and permeate his unique process of architectural design.

    In his work, utilising a range of media including pencil, charcoal, watercolour and pastel, Tchoban references neoclassicism and constructivism, illuminating the idea of the Grand Tour of Europe and recalling expressively the visions of Piranesi and Escher. The fantastical architectural visions Tchoban has captured on paper are not intended to be constructed physically, and reveal a surprising, introverted trait.

    As a leitmotif of his entire work he repeatedly incorporates the element of water, examining the phenomenon of ebb and flood, and the mystification of dream worlds. Strong spirits and intense emotions sculpt his images. Occasionally the coolness of Modernism and sobriety of the engineers construction dominate; at other times deep melancholy or romantic scenographies emerge, recalling images of classical stage designs or satirising the grand concetto.

    Sergei Tchoban: Art represents an opportunity to glimpse the world through the eyes of a visionary, and to perceive the imaginary behind the concrete.
