ALEXANDER LOZOVOY/Александр Лозовой (1949)
Alexander Lozovoy remained in the 21st century as the only artist who was a direct disciple of Russian avant gard artists. His teacher was Barbara Bubnova (1886 - 1983), who worked and participated in exhibitions together with V. Kandinsky, K. Malevich, P. Filonov, A. Rodchenko and others. His father Nikolai Lozovoy (1901 - 1992) took classes from Filonov and Malevich in 1920s. In his paintings Lozovoy uses technique and secrets of the old Russian icon school. His canvases are made of microstrokes of different paints that do not mix, which makes his paintings very bright. This technique allows his paintings to preserve their colors because chemical elements of the pigments do not interact with each other. Alexander Lozovoy was born in 1949. Lozovoy is an independent artist living in Moscow. His work has been exhibited in Russia and other countries and his paintings are in the prestigious collections in various countries of the world. His works are also exhibited in the Moscow Museum of Modern Art and The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (Moscow), the State Russian Museum (St -Petersburg), Zimmerli Art Museum in New Jersey (USA), other museums and private collections. Lozovoy's paintings were sold on MacDougall’s Auction in London, Sotheby's and Auction in Stockholm.
