Alexander Radtke is one of the young contemporary artists, but with the main distinctive feature, he provides an unconventional approach to the direction of movement in art. From the series «Stillness Speaks» in 2016, the story begins about the spiritual in painting. Radtke was born in Shadrinsk in 1989, graduated from Shadrinsky University, studied information technology. In 2011, after completing his studies, he moves to Yekaterinburg, where he works by profession, however, after a while he decides to give up his career in this field and devote himself entirely to painting. Radtke begins to self-study drawing and painting, is engaged in the theory of art, and receives «expert» advice from local artists. After a while, he participates in the general exhibition of the English museum «Everything», where he receives a good response to his drawings with watercolors from curators. He travels a lot and is looking for his style of drawing and painting. Early Radtke — at times very unexpected. The themes are different: from portraits to landscapes, from phantasmagoria to realism, it was then that the familiarity with pasty and oil occurred. After a while oil becomes the main tool of the artist, the seriality of works appears. By 2013, the artist created 3 different themes for the development of his painting, but the main unifying key between them was the expression. By that time, the main theme was the study of the form and its further refraction, be it a human figure, or an animal — distorted, broken, encased in geometric figures or dissolved in the background of the picture. The painter considered classical painters as his teachers: Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Tiziano, and Ingres, but on the other hand, he was inspired by the works of Francis Bacon, Amedeo Modigliani, and Edvard Munch. In 2014, Radtke received a proposal for a festival in Germany. Immediately agreeing, he moves to Berlin. There he gets acquainted with a completely different level of painting, visits exhibitions of a huge number of artists (Picasso, Bacon, Van Gogh, Turner, etc.), he also faces enormous friendly competition and joins the community of the European Gallery group. After festivals and exhibitions he gets acquainted with Abstractionism. Beginning of 2015 marks the transition to the Abstract. Inspired by abstract art — Kandinsky, Rothko, Pollack, Richter, etc.
