About Artist -
Aleksandrov was born in 1949 in Vilnius, Lithuania and immigrated to the United States in 1980, settling in New York City. He has had many one-man shows in the States and has been collected in more than twenty countries worldwide. His paintings pulsate with a vibrant spiritual energy and reflect his personal belief that faith is at the center of our existence. Aleksandrov's disdain for trendy art has taken him to the past for inspiration. He believes that art cannot be created out of a vacuum, but instead is the progression of a long heritage. Ancient icons, the Renaissance concept of art and beauty and the Russian Avante Garde movement influence his work. He merges geometric forms and the human body into symbolic configurations of squares, circles and triangles. He continually creates a perfect arrangement of figures in a rhythmic choreographed motion. Through his paintings, Aleksandrov desires to transcend reality and reach a higher spiritual realm. His works are held in the collections of the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, and Moscow Museum of Contemporary Art.
