This new exhibit represents a shift in style from Siergey’s previous showing, “nart.” (See What is ‘nart’? You’ll know it when you see it, January article.) The bright colors and patterns suggest a southwestern influence, but Siergey’s sense of irony and observation are distinctive.

Siergey’s work has been profiled in the book Attitude: The New Subversive Political Cartoonist, and his ‘nartoons” now appear regularly in The Lansing Journal.

“Painted Objects” will be on display from April 27–June 22 at Promise You Art House. For more information, visit
