Alex Kanevsky dal 1983 vive a Philadelphia (USA) e dal 1992 insegna alla Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, dove lui stesso ha studiato tra il 1989-1993.
Kanevsky è originario di una provincia della Russia, Rostvo-na Donu, ed ha trascorso alcuni anni in Lithuania, a Vilnius, dove si è laureato anche in scienze matematiche.
In un abile gioco tra realtà ed astrazione i suoi dipinti sono pervasi da un senso di mistero che stuzzica la curiosità dello spettatore. Come se non volesse esprimere tutto, il pittore russo lascia qualcosa in sospeso nelle sue opere e tocca a chi guarda il compito di interpretare, di dare un significato all’immagine.
Kanevsky è vincitore di molti premi artistici.
