I was born in the East, in one of the Central Asian republics, studied in the West, spent four years studying the history of ecclesiastical and religious art and philosophy at the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Pontifical Oriental Institute in Rome in Italy. Now my home is in Russia, but I feel like a man of the world and my paintings reflect this - Alexandr says.
I traveled a lot to different countries and different cities. Cities impressed me, and of course, left their mark on my work. People leave their marks on the planet in the form of architecture, old and new, large forms and small. And I'm an artist, I leave my mark on cities in my paintings. I was able as well to travel along the coasts of Italy and France and had the good fortune to admire the wonderful scenery of those places. These are beautiful coastal places with an amazing atmosphere and harmony. Nature, architecture, I absorbed all this and expressed my impressions in picturesque paintings.
You can see in my pictures animals that live with a person, who are our close friends. I like horses, donkeys, cats, and dogs. These animals are loyal and kind, they help us. I also often paint fish and birds in my paintings, they are free. They have no borders in their swimming and flying Of course, I am also interested in the person! The man, different types of him, undoubtedly leaves a mark in my work. Images of people are many-sided and complex, people are all very different. I like to unravel the psychological image of a person, their emotions and feelings. A person is complex and beautiful at the same time.
