Sergey and Svetlana Kurbatsky graduated from the Art Academy in 1998: the studio of S. N. Kichko and A.A.Mylnikov respectively. Both artists became members of the Union of the Russian Artists in 2003. From 1998 the artists took active part in few exhibitions of the Russian art which were placed in the USA. In 2010 Sergey and Svetlana were among the artists who were commissioned by the Russian ministry of culture to paint one of the venues at the Venetian Architectural biennale. That was also a beginning of the small landscape series featuring Italy.
