Biography from Auctionata:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Serge Diakonoff was born in Geneva in 1933.  There he studied at the University of Art and Design between 1950 and 1954.  From the 1950s onwards, he designed numerous stage sets, e.g. for the Théatre des Champs-Elysées and the Opera in Paris.  In 1953 he had his first exhibition.  Since then his work is regularly shown throughout Europe. 

At first Diakonoff devoted himself to abstract painting, creating mobiles and sculptures.  Inspired by the African masks he collected, he created his first 'skin paintings' in the 70s, and thus became a pioneer of body painting.  Today Diakonoff mainly works in acrylic and creates collages and sculptures.  His works are a dialogue between the consciousness and the unconsciousness, between the past and the future.
