    About The Artist

    Alex Andreev embarks on a “journey of the intuition” as he delves into childhood memories and dreams to create his art. Alex is attracted to digital art for its freedom and ease of use. He overcomes the hurdles of traditional mediums by digitalizing images and layering one symbol on top of another.

    Artist Statement

    ".. the nagual Elias went to his dreaming journeys the way a wild animal prowls for food... visited, let's say, the junkyard of infinity... and copied whatever he saw, but never knew what those things were used for, or their source".

    This Carlos Castaneda's words from his 'Power Of Silence' are the closest description of my perception of creation process. Never did I — and never will — take the creation as a product of man's intellect. Instead I take it as activity aiming to fix certain states of comprehension I experienced in my childhood, in my dreams, etc. David Linch would define this as the journey of the intuition.

    I never discuss how this mechanism works — I am inclined neither to mysticism nor to intellectual speculations. However human brain is the most complex thing ever created in the Universe, and our conscious awareness is only a thin film in the ocean of unconsciousness. Everything is possible in this ocean. I work and I get back to those states of comprehension, to my childhood memories, to my dreams. I experience them again and again. This is my only motivation to do what I do.

    It sounds paradoxical but digital art attracts me because it is free of technological influence. While in traditional arts technologies dramatically limit the artist — his ability to stylize works in graphics or extremely time consuming process of paint drying, in digital painting I sit in front of a screen, grab the stylus and see the result immediately.

    And I am really glad people find in my work emotions similar to those I used to experience while creating my works.
