Volkov Alexander

Volkov Alexander

Alexander Volkov was born in Tashkent in 1964.
Since 1989, he has been a member of the Association of Free Artists of St. Petersburg. He has participated in exhibitions, since 1990, including around 30 exhibitions in St. Petersburg galleries.
His works can be found in private collections in Denmark, Holland, France, Germany, Italy, USA, Canada, England, Sweden, Hong-Kong, Russia.
Searching for his own path in art, the artist is attempting to understand life in all its complexity, as well as the philosophical profundity of its development. Choosing a journey through pictures as his medium, the artist has re-constructed St. Petersburg in accordance with his own vision. St. Petersburg has inspired the artist to look for a new figurative language that brings together the rich traditions of the city with a modern viewpoint. In his experiments the borders of genres are broken. Through the use of vivid and sometimes unusual language, he steps beyond the traditional conception of “St. Petersburg”, while still maintaining a strict correspondence to the city’s spirit and mythology.
