Solo show of Moscow born painter Alexey Firsov

About

Alexey Firsov was born in 1966, and has always lived and worked in Moscow. He

studied at the Moscow Institute of Architecture, and has selectively

exhibited his paintings over the past 20 years. Some of his

exhibitions have been shown at leading Moscow art venues: Art Manezh;

Winzavod Contemporary Art Center; The Roerich Museum; and the Central

House of Artists.

Alexey works only en plein-air. He tries to remove himself as far as

possible from civilization, and derives intense inspiration and energy

from the wilds of the natural world. Russia’s vast untouched and

unpopulated forests and tundra provide bountiful opportunity for this.

He seeks natural objects with a powerful mature and expressive

character and he believes that wild and unspoiled nature possesses

greater harmony than the man-made world, and this belief can be seen

in the rhythm of his brush strokes that create powerful and stirring

images.

He is the accomplished Moscow abstract painter. Over the

past two decades Mr Firsov pioneered his own artistic style, "Lavism,"

derived from volcanic and passionate brush strokes, explosive colors,

and bold thick texture.
