Aлександр Заварин lives and creates most of his artworks in Moscow, Russia. He graduated from the Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry (Stroganovka), and active member of the Russian Union of Artists. He participates frequently in various group and individual art exhibitions in Russia. Alexander actually got passion for drawing during his service in the Russian Army.
For a couple of years after his military service, he was an associate art designer at Mosfilm, the Russian state movie-making studio. Despite long working hours, he continued studying drawing at night school. When he was 26, he entered Stroganov Art University. While a student Alexander worked mostly on mastering his drawing skills whilst his passion in oil painting came later when he taught himself to paint. Alexander paints in various styles with the style borders playing and interlacing with each other. The brush, under his masterful hand plays with the tones and semi-tones, as well as with the light, shade effects and the exact soft color touches creating magic images in his landscape, still life, portrait or abstract paintings.
His earlier landscape and still life works were made in a realism style, with a later tendency for abstract expressionism, which Alexander calls “deviations to realism”. His paintings hang in private collections in Russia and abroad in countries such as; Germany, Slovenia, Serbia and France. This is the first exhibition of his paintings in America and he will participate in the Second Annual From Russia With Arts and Culture festival at the Newton Cultural Center April 19-21.Apart from oil and graphic exhibitions, he partook in several church interior decoration painting in Moscow and the suburbs. Nature has showered him with gifts - a talented person is talented in everything - Alexander’s selfdesigned, self-made knives and jewelry made from wood are in high demand with collectors and friends.
I paesaggi del pittore Russo Александр Заварин sono abilmente "scolpiti" nell'insieme, mentre le macchie di colore creano una suggestiva illusione tridimensionale. L'artista dipinge su una tavolozza e la pittura in una fase iniziale, caotica, con una inconsapevole disposizione caotica dei pigmenti e dei colori. Il risultato: il caos si trasforma in luce. Morbido, fresco, luce diffusa quella della mattina, mentre la serata semi-trasparente avvolge con un velo gli alberi, lasciando il posto ai nostri pensieri. Meditazione introspettiva, piacevoli riflessioni di eventi passati e futuri.
