Alexander Lufer

Alexander Lufer is a very untypical artist to come out of Russia. Whereas most artists from his generation try to avoid photorealism, Lufer effortlessly captures the precise nature of light creating magnificent still lifes. Manipulating the paint, he is able to show reflection, glare and shadow in such a way that gives exacting perspective to his artwork.

His subject matter is often quite disturbing and his usual choice of bright and contrasting colours adds yet another facet to his intrigue. His style has evolved over the last few years to using digital manipulation of images, which further follows his veneration of reflection as beauty.
