Sergei Senkin was born in 1894. In 1914 he enters the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. In 1918 he takes art courses at the State Free Art Studios in Moscow, where he studies with Malevich and Pevsner. In the 1920s he continues his studies with Malevich and is strongly influenced by him. In 1920-1921, together with his friend and colleague Gustav Klutsis he starts experimenting with materials, making constructions from wood and paper that combine the geometry of Suprematism with a more Constructivist concern with actual volumes in space.
At the time, he creates a series of picturesque compositions and, in parallel, geometrical figures and spatial models that can be defined as free interpretations of Suprematism. His works represent compositions of superimposed structural layers, strengthening the feeling that one layer relates to the other, one form inflows to another. Senkin uses several media to express himself such as painting, graphic and poster design, photography and photomontage. Senkin is a member of the October Group (1928-32) together with Klutsis, Lissitzky, Rodchenko, the Shterenberg brothers, the Vesnin brothers among other talented artists. Senkin dies in Moscow in 1964.
