Sergey Kir is a unique and innovative artist who's created his own remarkable, new art style, which he coined "Conceptivism." An ambitious approach to painting, Conceptivism synthesizes technology, financial modeling, and art history into a cohesive whole. Utilizing hand drawing, digital photography, and the analytical methods from quantitative finance, Kir's ultimate goal is to create a “gesamtkunstwerk,” or absolute work of art, which goes beyond the visual to incite, provoke, inspire, and enrich the minds of his viewers.
Kir’s compositions are planned using computer algorithms, with strong philosophical and socio-political messages as their underpinnings. By mixing machine learning, finance, humanity, storytelling, and vivid colors, Kir believes that he’s able to create images just this side shy of perfection. His work generally centers around several themes, namely New York City, “the city of peoples' dreams;” Toronto, water, abstraction, Biblical stories by his family background and his personal connection to the "Kir" fortress mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, and world finance, something he describes as being as much an art as a science.
Kir was born in Zhytomit, Western Ukraine (USSR at a time), finished high school in Murmansk, Russia, and studied Architecture in Kiev, Ukraine, before immigrating to the US, New York where he graduated from NYU with degree in finance.
In creation of Conceptivism, Kir wanted to integrate financial modeling and portfolio optimization techniques from quantitative finance, into the artistic process, and developed a method to create visual representations, that unites the artistic and the analytical worlds, and synthesizes capabilities of hand drawing, digital photography, and scientific methods.
Kir lives and works in New York and is happy to share his works.
