Volkov Alexander


He was born in 1964 in Tashkent, but now he lives and works in St. Petersburg. Since 1989 he belongs to Fellowship of Free-lance artists in St.Petersburg.

«Inspite of quite traditional technology, I treat my way of painting as experimental. I investigate relations of internal psychical reality and external «profanic», where I am a subject and an object together (in order not to get to my neighbors' head). As I am a self-taught person, I am clear of some else's knowledge (how to paint) and sometimes I «reinvent the wheel», but this wheel can be used in cross-country…» – says A. Volkov.

In our gallery we mostly have his cityscapes which are very popular. His works dedicated to jazz music are less popular because jazz is music for the chosen ones. His painted jazz sounds! And we recomend the real judges of this music to get acquinted with his jazz painting.
