Alex Kanevsky-2

Russian-born Alex Kanevsky is a figurative painter who creates such beautiful pieces out of almost moving paintbrush strokes. He explains his technique best in these few lines –

-People, whom I paint, are never still. They want to move, they are built for motion. It is actually painful for models to be still longer than 20 minutes. I like them, I find them endlessly fascinating, how they are built, the way they grow and shrink over time, how they move, act, express their emotions, etc. So I want to paint them the way they are, and to me they are defined by their motion. A brick is defined by its shape and people are defined by their motion.
