About Sergey Jivetin

As an alumnus of SUNY New Paltz, with its progressive conceptual ideology of studio art practice and Parsons School of Design, NYC with its more integrated design, art and craft approach, Sergey Jivetin constantly experiments with work that blurs the boundaries of separate areas of art and design. Having pursued extensive industry experience in the various formats of design and manufacturing, including fine, fashion and art jewelry, product design, engineering, illustration as well as music and film both in the United States and abroad, he feels the multitude of formats and approaches is the necessary contemporary condition of being an artist. Describing this broad interpolation of disciplines as the most exciting development defining our contemporary experience of culture, Sergey notes that very little of American metalsmithing education is reflecting that. As an adjunct faculty at SUNY New Paltz, he is a part of a dialog of that kind of cultural integration philosophy in an art academic environment.

As an independent studio artist, he constantly pushes the boundaries of the discipline. With Tools of the Trade and Tools of the Trade II collections of executive office objects, and their artful critique of the office space environment, Sergey reinterprets and reintroduces the concept of paradox in the sterility and deadly seriousness of human interactions in the office environment.

The exciting developments behind this and other bodies of work that Sergey is currently focusing his attention on, illustrate the importance of Mr. Jivetin's artistic vision in the context of not only contemporary jewelry, but fine arts in general.

Since only now starting to be acknowledged for the degree of innovation that he brings to the field, Mr. Jivetin is expanding his efforts to search even deeper, and to discover new directions and possibilities for his artistic vision.
