The rich décor of Tsygal’s etchings is combined with tender shades of colorful smooth layers. Art Critics noticed Tsygal’s perfect graphic technique, strong composition and vibrant emotions. He was called “The Great Animalist”.
Tsygal’s skills and professionalism have been accumulated over the years, after studying with master printers at the Stroganoff Art Academy in Moscow, Russia, resulted in gaining recognition from the European and Russian museums, as well as private collectors in the US, Great Britain, Japan, Mexico, Germany and Sweden.
“Sergei found his own world by rejecting big subjects, grandiose sizes and long trips. Since he was a boy, he liked to look at a leaf, a lizard, a picture of a long-necked spotted giraffe and to draw what he liked with a sharp needle on a zinc plate covered with lacquer.
Individual plates- small and large- are joined in a variety of ways to make a single print. Each print is a variation of plates and color. Each is beautiful in its own right, and the number of copies does not contradict their uniqueness.”
