Alexander Volkov was born in Russia in 1960. He started painting with oil as a high school student and in 1986 graduated from the Department of Physics at Leningrad State University. Following graduation Alexander worked as an animator at Leningrad Studio of Science Films and later as a stage artist in a small Leningrad theatre.
Combining a lifelong fascination with architecture, landscape and still life subjects, Alexander brings drama and poetic expression into his work. With his unique vision, he merges mood and atmosphere, evoking powerful emotions that create harmony.
"There is no greater mystery to me than the conflict of light and dark. In the way they clash and penetrate each other, there is the source of everything. Whether I paint a landscape, a still-life or a portrait, within it there is always a story of light traveling through darkness."
