Alexander Lozovoy is currently the only living Russian artist who was taught directly by Russian avant-garde masters at the beginning of the XX century. 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) was taught by Filonov and Malevich in 1920s.
In his paintings Lozovoy uses techniques and secrets from the old Russian icon school. His canvases are made with different types of paint that do not mix, which makes his paintings very bright. This technique allows his paintings to preserve their colours 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 included in various collections worldwide. 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 in Auction in Stockholm.
