Alexander Voitsekhovsky


Alexander Voitsekhovsky was originally a doctor who drew in his spare time. In 1994 Alexander’s friends, without his knowledge, assembled the pictures he’d given them, put them in frames, transferred the commentaries he’d written on the back to labels, and hung them in a gallery on the Moika river in St Petersburg. Then they invited people along, including the artist. In 2000 Alexander quit his job and started to travel the world with his pictures. He has exhibited widely, in the UK, USA and Europe, as well as Russia. Wherever he goes, the charming, idiosyncratic humour of his work finds an appreciative audience. This beautifully designed book showcases these paintings and drawings and allows them to speak for themselves – for they genuinely create an entire world of their own.
