Alexander Volkov


Alexander Volkov (Russian, b. 1960) combines a lifelong fascination with architecture, landscape and still life subjects. Alexander brings drama and poetic expression into his artwork. With his unique vision, he merges mood and atmosphere, evoking powerful emotions that create harmony. Volkov’s photorealistic original oil paintings and limited editions on canvas can be found in selected fine art galleries across the United States and Europe. Read More

Alexander Volkov is a Russian-American oil painter who was born in St. Petersburg 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.

During his education at LSU, the Russian artist began exhibiting paintings with a group of Leningrad artists known as the “Brotherhood of Experimental Arts” in 1981. The group was a conglomeration of underground art groups active in Leningrad during the 80s. He also joined a splinter group called “Ostrov” or “Island” which was a group of 30 artists who felt that their artwork was not socialist realism or extreme avant-garde. Taking his varied background and art experience with him, Volkov moved to the US in 1990 and has worked as a teacher since.

Volkov reluctantly calls himself a “self-taught” artist. He says, “We really teach ourselves. If you want to learn, you will always find someone to learn from. You learn from everything you see and hear around you – if you are willing to pay attention. In my formative years I made a lot of mistakes but at the same time I had the enormous advantage of picking my own teachers.”

"They have all taught me something - how to see, how to hear, how to understand things and, most importantly, how to understand myself. I cannot separate any one of their voices from the voice which I hear inside of me and which has become my own voice."

"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."

Alexander now lives in Holland Township, New Jersey with his wife Barbara and their three children, Alice, Peter and Nicholas.
