About the Artist
Alexandr Petelin (b.1999, Russia) is a self-taught contemporary artist whose interest from art stemmed from his early childhood. ‘No stories, My personality shouldn't be interested at all, I'm just a tool.' His creativity was greatly influenced by the art of ancient civilisations, art of Africa and Egypt Japan, China, and European Art of the 19th century. Al realised that beauty is the reason, the question, the beginning, and the end in every sense. However, he often doesn't like to explain his artworks at all as everything needed already exists within the painting, between the great conscious and unconscious. Al lives and works in Astrakhan, Russia.
