“To be a painter for me is to create my own world”

Alexander Trifonov is an experienced artist from Russia whose works have been featured in solo and group shows internationally. With a background in design, Trifonov developed his painting style creating winter scenes and still lifes characterized by modern and surrealist qualities. Throughout his work, there is an emphasis on geometry and order through the use of straight lights and unexpected shapes.
Alexander Trifonov was born in 1975 in Moscow. Studied at moscow polygraphic institute. He received an education in design and worked with Moscow theaters since early 90-s. Since 1998 he is working in Chekhov Moscow Art Theatre and also creates designs for magazines and art books. A member of the Artists’ Union of Russia, he exhibits his works in many group and individual exhibitions every year. In 2005 a book about the artist with his art, articles and comments has been printed in Moscow, is a noted follower of the modern avant-guard art concept known as receptualism.
“And we can only acknowledge he has what it takes – everything he creates has consistency and originality of the artist. You can’t take his world for someone else’s”, says Evgeny Rein, a poet.
