His degree project has received special praise from the State Commission, also published in the review “Arti Visive”.
The painter was invited to participate in the restoration of the pediments and mosaic friezes of the “Metropol” hotel in the heart of Moscow.
In the year 1992 he participated in the reconstruction of the center of folk art “Gzhel”. In 1998 he became a member of the Russian painters union. In the early 2000s Serghey Teplyakov was invited to the First Russian Gallery of Ceramics and Porcelain for the position of artistic director.
