Alexander Volkov is a Russian-American oil painter who was born in St. Petersburg in 1960 and has lived and worked in Hunterdon County for 25 years.
Combining a lifelong fascination with architecture, landscape and still-life subjects, Alexander brings drama and poetic expression into his work.
With his unique vision, he merges mood and atmosphere, evoking powerful emotions that create harmony.
“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.”
