Alexi SerykhWith a passion for life and creativity, Alexi Serykh creates oil paintings that have Rockwellian flare with a twenty-first century edginess. Influenced by his many life experiences, he’s worked in blue collar jobs as well as white collar jobs, his paintings resonate with everyday life and present a side to that everyday life that is often overlooked. Attention to detail along with a turpentine wash, keeps his technique light and translucent. Minimal texture tricks the eye into seeing wonderful layers of depth that aren’t there, while colors blend and marry with surrounding spaces to create washed areas that still form detailed imagery. While studying in art school in Russia, Serykh realized he had a passion for movement and for creative gestures. He became particularly interested in figurative works, creating a colorful and bold background in order to allow focus to land on the figure in each painting. He will often reverse the technique and leave a lighter background with intense colors creating his figure and character. His highly realistic style is taken from the school of realism and translates itself into the action and people in his paintings. At some point in time all of us has been either close to or in the same situations as his characters. Shown in museums and galleries all over the world, Serykh, credits his hard work and creative edge for his visual success. He says “Creativity is my life. Even when I am dreaming, I am painting new pictures in my head”.

Great Art, Great People to Deal With. I've been doing business with this gallery for fifteen years and have purchased 4 major works of art from them. I love the artists they represent, the quality of work they sell, and the stable employee base that represents the artists. I once had a problem with a frame that showed cracking after two years. They had the art picked up and delivered by professional packagers/transporters after replacing the frame with an even better one. Their level of salesmanship and follow-up customer care is outstanding. I never come to town without stopping in to enjoy some of the best contemporary art available in the French Quarter.
They feature several amazing artists whose work are exclusive to this network of galleries in the USA, including Denis Lebecq and Marc Clauzade. I recommend speaking with Bilal McGlothan or the owner, Scott Novick. Both are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They also have the most beautiful custom frames you will find anywhere.
Beautiful and simple art gallery showcasing the work of immensely talented people.
What an awesome little gallery, with unique, amazing art and attentive service if you want to learn more about any of their artists. We purchased art by a french artist named Lebecq that is nothing short of spectacular.
Best of The Big Easy two years in row for a really good reason!

Sometimes we just drive in from Baton Rouge to see the Lebecq red painting – one day maybe one day.
I found this place after a Saint’s game when my friends ditched me, and the Gallery Director was so awesome I bought a DeVon painting and I love it still to this day. Bilal is amazing.
