Aleksandr Kosenkov

Born in the Amur region in 1959, Kosenkov first studied at the Ivanovo State Technical University in Novosibirsk. In 1984 Kosenkov began studying at the studio of Natalia Chizhik and remained one of her students until 1998.

Inspired by everyday objects, Kosenkov imbues shapes with such vibrancy that they appear to burst from the canvas. His paintings are a visual refection of the landscape of his mind, made up of street scenes, landscapes, interiors, figures and architecture. He is fascinated by the mixture of archaic elements and powerfully coloured shapes, while simultaneously using patterns to symbolize the nexus between the natural reality of the figure and the colorful world he creates.

Kosenkov's paintings can be found in public and private collections in Russia and abroad in the USA, Germany, UK, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Norway, and Israel.
