Alexander Volkov

"There is no greater mystery to me than that of light traveling through darkness."
Alexander Volkov was born in St. Petersburg, (then Leningrad), Russia in 1960.  He started painting with oil as a high school student.  From the age of 7 to 17 he attended a special English school, 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.

In 1981, he began to exhibit his paintings with a group of 200 Leningrad artists known as the "Brotherhood of Experimental Arts," a conglomeration of "underground" arts groups active in Leningrad at the time.  Later, he joined a splinter group called "Ostrov" (island), which united 30 artists who felt that, ideologically, their work was neither socialist realism nor extreme avant garde.

Since moving to the U.S. in 1990, he has worked as a teacher and exhibited his paintings at Princeton and Lambertville, New Jersey, New Hope and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Carmel, Laguna Beach and San Francisco, California, and Park City, Utah.  Alexander's paintings have also been exhibited in Russia, Sweden, Germany and Finland.

Combining a lifelong fascination with architecture, landscape and still life subjects, Alexander brings drama and poetic expression into his work.  With his unique vision, her merges mood and atmosphere, evoking powerful images that create harmony.

"There is no greater mystery 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, there is always a story of light traveling through darkness."
