Semeonov was born
January 23rd, 1911 in the village of Maksimovo near Vitebsk.
Since 1937 he participated
in a variety of Art Exhibitions.
life was his Art, which he used to express himself and his time.
The latter does not manifest itself in any obvious way in his works,
and the tonality of these invariably concordant with the period,
in which he was living, and with the feelings and memories of his
who perceive Semeonov’s paintings as a kind of deja-vu art.
Semeonov died in 1992, when changes in the atmosphere of Russian Art were at their peak, bringing about new ideas, new names, and pushing others - even though much better known - into oblivion.
If you get in touch with his paintings today and establish a relationship with his soul through his work, you will immerse into the atmosphere of past epochs when the artist disclosed the most surreptitious aspects of his life, including his dreams, his doubts, tiny joys, and major sorrows.
