Many artists combined their art with a variety of occupations. Gauguin was s stockbroker, Rousseau a customs officer and Matisse studied Law. There has been a gap for a painting accountant which Moscow born Alex Borissov (1963) is volunteering to fill. Member of the Fine Art Trade Guild, Alex produced a series of stunning impressionist oil paintings - cityscapes and themes from nature. With his recent foray into acrylics, Alex has advanced into his long term favourite - abstract expressionist art.

 

1963
Alexander Borissov was born in Moscow, Russian Federation.

 

1986-2002
After graduating from Moscow State University, Alexander Borissov moved to London to complete his second Master degree at American university Huron and later accomplished CIMA qualification.

 

2002
He follows the steps of his artist-grandfather by producing an array of highly successful impressionist images - city-scapes and themes from nature. Borissov’s artworks are exhibited in London galleries, including those at prime locations at Kensington Church Street, in the heart of the financial centre at Canary Wharf, as well as at the prestigious Chelsea Art Fair and an art exhibition at Kensington Olympia.

 

2004
Member of the Fine Art Trade Guild in London, Alexander Borissov issues limited edition prints of his impressionist art works, gaining international recognition.

 

2006
On the quest of artistic liberty, Alexander Borissov breaks away from the constraints of figurative art in favor of abstract and eventually abstract-expressionist technique. He invents his own ravioli painting technique. “Dip one boiled ravioli into household paint and launch it with a catapult on a thickly primed canvas, and you will get an intriguing pattern of lines and colours resulting from an interplay of intention and chance”, comments Alexander.

 

2008 to present
The artist moves to Switzerland. He gets inspiration from the vast spaces of Swiss mountain landscapes. Painting in his spacious art studio in Erlenbach, as well as in the Swiss Alps and at international locations in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Italy, Maldives, Sweden, Russia, UK, and USA, he creates extra-large polyptych paintings in abstract expressionist style.
