Alexander Shubin is a Russian-Canadian artist who presently resides and paints in his art-studio in Ottawa, Canada. Alexander expresses his creative mind using a unique style and techniques which he has developed living and painting in Europe, but he is always in search for a new and original manner to express himself in art. In his works Alex often uses contemporary and surreal ideas and combines them with his extraordinary style.
“Making this artwork I have been inspired by German philosophy (Hermann Hesse). I have been trying to reproduce my own impressions. Thoughts about the meaning of life, a desire to be withdrawn from the circle of society. Our highly moral but totally useless attempts leading to nowhere.”
