Alexander Didenko

Alexander was born in Siberia. Now he lives in Moscow. He likes to draw and he has been doing this for many years. This is not a job, this is a love. He is sure, the Russian art has a difficult but rich way. Alex hopes that his art inherits the best Russian traditions. His idols are Filonov, Chagall, Malevich, Kandinsky. The graphics should be comical, he is saying, light, absurd.

Artist puts an important meaning in his images and forms. He sends a message. And he would like to be heard. Is not it? He often distorts the form. Distortion makes the form funny, free, familiar. He hopes that humor releases us from totalitarian captivity. He would like to be part of a free society. It’s difficult. 100 years of totalitarian imprisonment make you really alone.

On the 1993, Alex graduated from the university in Moscow. Being an engineer, he drafted bus stops and other needless objects for several years. In 2009 he graduated from the another institute and made the “Children draw a swastika” documentary which has an anti-Nazi orientation.

Alexander has two sons, he loves them and would like to pass them this world, which is getting a little better.
