Biography 
Scherer & Ouporov American-born Suzanne Scherer and Russian-born Pavel Ouporov are a husband-and-wife artist team who met in Moscow in 1989 as students at the esteemed Moscow Surikov State Academic Art Institute. Scherer holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Florida State University, a Master of Fine Arts from Brooklyn College, and was awarded an International Research & Exchanges Board Award to be the first American visual artist accepted for advanced studies in the former Soviet Union.  At the age of 11, Ouporov won admittance into the highly competitive Moscow Academic Art Lyceum of the Russian Art Academy, graduated at the age of 18 and earned a Master of Fine Arts from the Moscow Surikov State Academic Art Institute.  In 1991, he immigrated to United States and became a citizen in 1999. 

Scherer & Ouporov have since received international recognition for their collaborative works encompassing painting, photography, installation, mixed-medium construction, and performance that draws on Russian icon painting, figuration and medieval manuscript illumination as well as Russian Symbolist and Futurist poetry. Their works are exhibited and included in many public collections internationally including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, Harvard University Fogg Art Museum, and The State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.
