Born in Paris, France in 1929, his father was the Polish painter Maurice Mendjisky who taught at the École de Paris which is how Serge became acquainted with art. He went on to study at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris and soon became a recognised artist, exhibiting from an early age all around the world including Europe, Japan and the United States.

Having previously used photography to make his preliminary studies in paintings, Mendjisky developed to use photography as his only means of expression from 2000, creating collages by altering photographic images to show multiple perspectives in order to articulate his multidimensional worldview. This can be interpreted as an analytical phase of Cubism. Pablo Picasso, was well known to Mendjisky thanks to his father’s activities on the art scene, who told him that Cubism would be fully achieved through photography. Mendjisky always kept this vision in mind, and after many years of technical exploration, he found a way to question not only the appearance of the world, but also our perceptual behaviour.

By decomposing and recomposing the backgrounds of some of the most famous cities of the world like New York and Paris, Mendjisky creates new urban landscapes which question our perceptive faculties. Volumes, lights and colours create different visual rhythms that establish new relations between time and space. Recognizable cityscapes are redefined and reformulated reality becomes three-dimensional.

The artist’s work is represented in public collections as well as private, the one of the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the Museum of Art in Philadelphia and the Museum of Fine Arts Pushkin in Moscow.
