Alexander Ilichev, 1958 | Abstract painter

"When I paint a portrait I create textures, I see to the coloration so that the paint would spread naturally and diversely thus producing an effect of lightness and breadth.
I paint spots of color, lines and dots.
I know not how to paint psychology, depth of an image or a life lived by someone.
And yet in a surprising way this all appears by itself.
A mystery inexplicable for me" - Alexander Ilichev.
