ABOUT ALEXEY KLOKOV
Alexey Klokov, a second generation artist, was born in 1965 in Russia. The impetus to navigate his own way in the world of art was attributable to his first teacher – the famous avant-garde artist of 20th century Anatoly Zverev. Certified in 1991 as an artist and art restorer by the Saint Petersburg Higher School of Art and Industry, Alexey worked in the restoration workshops of the Hermitage (Saint Petersburg) and Tretyakov Gallery (Moscow). As he was literally “in touch” with the masterpieces of the world’s great artists including Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso and others, Alexey created the opportunity to learn from them “without words”. In 1994 Alexey Klokov took residence in a monastery devoting himself to icon-painting. There he explored the secrets of gilding and the great power of symbolism embodied in the image. After four years of consistent work he achieved the confidence to embark on his own artistic career.
The theme of his first exhibition in 1998 in Moscow was an expression of his monastery experience. His special guest of honor, designer Paco Rabanne, deeply connected with the spirituality of Alexey’s artworks and purchased the first two pieces for his collection. Since then the artist’s paintings have been widely exhibited throughout Russia and abroad including the USA, Japan, the UK and Austria. The arrival of his exclusive agent and wife Naira Velumyan to Canada has introduced North American audience to his new collection of enamel on linen paintings named “Suggestive Abstract”. The art embodies an uniqueness that is simultaneously suggestive and subliminal, and reveals many shapes and forms of meaning, which is subject to a personal interpretation.
