Alexander Belsky

1980

Postmodernist artist.

An author who combines codes, images of Soviet and mass culture, Belarusian and global in his paintings. Their collisions create important meanings. He does it with great humor and irony. The author's approach is especially interesting. The plots are familiar to everyone, but new characters change the meaning, the attitude of the modern viewer; the perception of historical material as such is changing. It is as if we are learning to look at the past not as something hopelessly gone, but as the events of today.

The artist's works have repeatedly received audience awards at the art festival "Art-Minsk".

2019

A personal exhibition of Alexander Belsky "3, 2, 1 ... April" took place, which became a discovery. The paintings depict wonderful heroes who inhabit a strange world - a very conditional reflection of the real. The inhabitants of this world are hares, snowmen, astronauts; some alien police officers are loading apples into the tractor "Belarus", then suddenly they beat the snowmen, and the snowmen are inscribed in the classical painting of Rembrandt and Van Gogh. At the exhibition, everything was chosen according to the concept and consistently.

The artist about his practice:

"With posters, I began to feel more confident. Working on large formats is a case when the process brings joy, although this, of course, is not an end in itself. When the exhibition "3, 2, 1 ... April" was being prepared, I wanted to look at everything from the outside , it was necessary to collect works in one space. And then changes began: the search for new techniques, technologies, something was reformatted. For me, it was no longer important to paint a picture and make it look "beautiful". Movement means more, and tools can be the most different."

"For me, they are characters on which people's relations with each other, relations with the world around are projected," explains the artist . "That is their purpose. There are parallels with people's lives, partly there is my own experience. It is important that they are not abstract images and not specific models, but they always give me room for metaphor, replica, references to a variety of events."

"My very first buyer bought eight canvases at once. Before that, I did not even imagine that one could live on income from art. And for the first time it worked. But before, and now, the thought, the idea, is still in the first place, and then , of course, it's good that it is acquiring capital."
