Art Exhibition: Alexander Voitsekhovsky
Alexander Voitsekhovsky is an outstanding graphic artist from Russia, who stands out for a rare gift of bringing together warm humanity and playfulness, acumen and good humor. His endearing treatment of everyday life is always tempered with irony introduced through elements of absurdity, fantasy and surprise used with unfailing ingenuity.
Alexander Voitsekhovsky’s style is unfailingly modest and subtle. It is unpretentious in its each and every aspect, from the plainness of his subject matter to the childlike manner of drawing based on the rejection of perspective and preference for strictly frontal or profile views to the choice of
simple crayons as his main medium. The usage of crayons not only enriches the texture of his pictures, not only makes them lighter and more airy due the inherent roughness of the crayon line but also adds some indefiniteness to all the visual forms enhancing the inner truthfulness of the artist’s works
