Serge was born in 1971 in Ufa in the USSR. Serge Marshennikov is a Russian artist born in Ufa. Marshennikov studied at one of the most prestigious art academies in the world, The Repin Academy of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, Russia.As one of the most talented graduates of the academy he conducted his post-graduate studies under the personal tutelage of the Rector of the Academy, Professor Milnikov at his studio.

Serge Marshennikov’s hyperrealist paintings of women in interior spaces are heavily influenced by the mid-twentieth century American artist Andrew Wyeth. Wyeth painted the rural farming communities of his hometowns in America with sensitivity and affection becoming arguably the most popular artist of his time. Later he painted a series of paintings of his father’s nurse and caretaker, Helga. These paintings are so realistic that Helga almost seems present. It is in this way that Marshennikov portrays his sisters, depicting their skin and hair with the loving affection in which Wyeth portrayed Helga.

More recently, Marshennikov’s paintings have been auctioned through Christie's and Bonham's and are part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in El Paso, and in The Grace Museum at Abilene. Marshennikov’s work is included in a number of important private collections in Russia, England, Denmark, France and Japan.
