‘Living Water’Sergey Karlov


Sergey Karlov grew up in the village of Majna on the southern tip of the Republic of Khakassia in Russia. As a teen he began working at the stone-working plant of the Sayanmramor Combine, as a stone cutter and grinder, then spent 5 years studying at the Urals College of Applied Arts at the Faculty of Artistic Stone.. Here he developed an appreciation for the classical mosaic arts, especially Roman, Byzantine and Florentine styles and also studied the classical products of the old Russian masters of the Ekaterinburg and Peterhof lapidary factories, the Kolyvansky stone-carving plant and historical and cultural monuments represented in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.

‘The Dingling’ — Sergey Karlov


From 2002 to 2007 Karlov lived and worked in Moscow, where he was engaged in the design of decorative environments for residential and administrative interiors, landscape design and monumental and easel mosaics of stone using mixed techniques. Currently Sergey Karlov is living and working in Sayanogorsk.  Alfonso Mucha, Antonio Gaudi and Gustav Klimt are some of the  artists that have influenced his mosaic designs along with the folk and mystical traditions in the region where he resides.  He favours the Florentine tradition using careful utilization of the natural color variations found in the stones. Sinuous botanical borders and motifs, typical of Art Nouveau, appear in some of his mosaic panels. Most of his mosaic pieces are made with stone sourced from the Eastern Siberian steppes. This includes stones from the Khakass steppes and some stones collected from the Salbyk steppes. This sacred territory is popular, not only among tourists but is also a place of interest for the local shamans.

He has refined the technique of reading the rhythm of the stones and combining the colours to compliment this. Sergey collects local steppe stones that have laid for millions of years on the ancient Khakass land. These type of stones, as a rule, do not lend themselves to polishing, and in this there was no special need, since he is interested in their external heterogeneous shape, colours and rough textures. He likes to work with the harmonics of the natural world and stated that “when you are one with nature and often communicate with her, you begin to imitate her and live and create according to her laws, and not by someone else’s thoughts.”
