Alex Kanevsky – Figurative Painter
Alex Kanevsky was born in Russia in 1963. He is currently based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He combines abstraction and figuration in multilayered portraits. His work is said to capture movement and the constant flow of time, resisting adherence to a single moment.
“Kanevsky’s works are primarily concerned with the expression of time and movement. Taking the figure as his primary subject matter, the artist’s abstracted versions of reality convey his personal and particular worldview with “extreme clarity.” Exploring stillness and speed simultaneously, the artist displays a Futurist sensibility through his layered pieces. His compositions frequently juxtapose static, monumental objects with quick, expressive brushstrokes in order to suggest that people are defined by their motion and actions, rather than their physical place in the world.” – from his website.
