Sergey Hahonin comes from the former Soviet Union, where he graduated from the Siberian Art Academy in Krasnoyarsk in 1985 and became a member of the Union of Painters and Sculptors of Russia. In 1992, he moved to Slovenia and acquired Slovenian citizenship. His artistic creation is connected to Slovenian culture and tradition. In the SKRINA Ethnogallery, he exhibited details of Ljubljana’s landscapes, which show their integration into the environment in which they live. It is right that we also look at these details, because everyday life often tempts us not to notice the little things that surround us and make life more beautiful. In addition, Sergej Hahonin also likes to paint currants, haystacks and still lifes. The pastel colors show the softness of the Slavic soul, and thus the picture conjures a kindness and warmth that we often miss in today’s world of speed and alienation.
