photoHello! Before you have a look at my website and my paintings in particular, I’d like to say a few words about them and about the style I have chosen.

My artistic style is hyperrealistic but there are also elements of photorealism and at times – a touch of surrealism. I made my choice to work in these similar styles because they are the most suitable and adequate expression of my sense of form and idea. My desire is that the academic basis of form and image can be seen through my paintings. This is only a tool of developing any modern and abstract idea which can be interpreted by everybody in their own way. However hyperrealistic the compositions might be, they suggest universal concepts and eternal subjects.

My favourite artists are from the Renaissance and I have always wondered what their works would be like if they lived in the 20-th or 21-st century. I secretly hope that some of their paintings would look like mine.

As for the technique I use, it is very difficult and time-consuming. It requires a lot ot patience and precision of detail. That’s why I do hope that you will assess it on its true merits.

There are collages in some paintings, too. I think that the collage enhances the structure of oil paint and puts in more layers which bring about tangible associations. It can also serve as a bridge between classic and modern art.

I’ll have to finish with my comment for the time being. There will be more of it when we meet online or maybe even in the flesh. I’ll be glad to meet gallery-owners, art dealers, new collectors and art lovers. I wish everyone who will visit my site a great time with my works. Business offers, of course, are welcome.

Bye-bye for now.


Yours sincerely,

Alexander Titorenkov
