About Alexander Koltakov

Canadian painter and sculptor, works with acrylics and oils on canvases, also creates plaster on wood reliefs, or three-dimensional paintings, as he calls them. He is truly passionate about the amazing beauty of nature, processing it through his eyes, his mind and his hands to the stillness of canvases and plaster, aspire to express not the picture, but the life itself, without forgetting the fabulousness of human presence in it.
On canvases he work with brushes, palette knifes and finger touch when needed.

Alexander's 3-D paintings consist of the plaster figures, sculptured and carved on the base of the wood frame, finally covered with acrylic colors, creating spatial view, as real, as color - induced.
