Ink painting from Ancient Images series. Inspired by Russian Icons, in traditional Japanese sumo-e ink wash painting technique with Chinese inks on archival paper. In expressionism style.
Ink paintings by Alex Solodov are mostly the portraits. They are photo based images: "I love black & white photographs, it reminds me about silent films and I try to make every picture in my art like a strong, sensual movie." At the moment Alex mostly paints in sumi-e and color ink wash painting techniques. He also enjoys to paint expressionistic landscapes, townscapes and ocean paintings. Alex's artwork has been featured in private collections and galleries around the world including United Kingdom, Germany, Lithuania, USA, Austria, Denmark, Russia and Brazil. http://alexsolodov-art.com http://smokypixels/alex-solodov
