Alexander "Sasha" Spivak's study of fine art began at an early age and showed incredible promise. He started to develop his unique style when at the Lviv College of Fine Arts. The artist's unusual yet sophisticated imagery brought him through the surrealistic period to the series of technically perfect symbolic and rich in content art. Constantly developing his style Alexander "Sasha" Spivak established his own visual world of POETIC SYMBOLISM. After too many questions about connection of the style to a poetry Alexader came up with a formula "POETIC SYMBOLISM = ROMANTIC SURREALISM". The "Grace of Iinterrelations" is a leitmotif of every artists artwork.
Sasha Spivak lives in New York, USA.
Alexander Spivak's paintings are in private collections among masterpieces of such prominent artists as Wasily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Mark Shagal, Salvador Dali, Katsushika Hokusai, Utagava Hiroshige.
Alexander Spivak about his art:
I have always been interested in the expression of plastic thoughts in my paintings, ultimately creating something which resembles a complete composition while allowing the possibility for other things to simultaneously occur. Contrary to other fields of art such as music, literature and theater, the structure of fine arts does not permit the possibility of truly depicting action nor the development of dynamics in time. Therefore, through the desire to create an idea on canvas which infuses complex kinetic processes into painting, I have progressed a system of transformations. Often,the transformations from one shape to another change the meaning of the subject's main point and help me express the connections which lead us to the main idea.
