January, 24 2005

Baroness Margaret Thatcher and about 500 guests attended in St Paul's Cathedral the dedication of Chepik's 4 large canvases entitled "The Way, the Truth, the Life".
In his speech, the Dean of St Paul's, the Very Revd Dr John Moses said: "Chepik has captured in a stark and powerful fashion the Christ whom I found in the Gospels" and "this presentation of the Person of Our Lord in our tormented world may be able to speak to hearts and minds". While art critic Godfrey Barker emphasised that "these paintings are very much 'of our time' " and that " though these pictures are religious art, not vague dreams 'spiritual art', they will speak to those who dismiss Christianity or are ignorant of it as well as to those who have faith". See the St-Paul's Cathedral Page.

Sergei Chepik at St.Paul's Cathedral :

Sergei Chepik, a fervent Christian with a confirmed taste for religious painting, has been commissionned by St. Paul's Cathedral in London to paint 4 enormous panels, which will hang on the two large pillars at the centre of the Cathedral. The whole composition, entitled "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life" (St John, 14:6), is now being painted by the Russian born artist in his Montmartre studio. The two upper panels entitled The Nativity and the Resurrection have already been completed. Chepik is now proceeding to the execution of the two major panels (more than 4 meters in height) representing the Public Life and the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He will be working on them until the end of this year.
Chepik has been working on this project since April 2002, making numerous sketches and hundreds of preparatory drawings. With this monumental composition Chepik will be the first contemporary artist ever commissionned by St-Paul's Cathedral. See the page dedicated to this work in progress.
