Alexander Babich lives in a quiet village in the south of Russia, not far from the Caucasian mountains.
“It is difficult to get inspiration among city walls, I need freedom and air.”
In this sense, the Artist can be called a hermit. Unity with nature gives birth to new themes, revealing many faceted artistic vision of Aleksandr.
Each year the artist goes for plein air to the mountains of Dombai, Arkhyz, Teberdy, and Uzunkol for the new impressions and creativediscoveries.
Mountains are the passion of the Artist. They are always unexpectedness and variability, and these are their charms.
“Here, within one day you can find yourself in all seasons of the year. The same landscape can change emotional palette in one minute. That is why you can go to the mountains of Dombai and Arkhyz your whole life and each time you will discover something new”, says the Artist.
Aleksandr’s works are beyond fashion. You will want to look at them even 50 or 100 years later.
It is an eternal beauty of nature so skillfully reflected by the talented hand of the Artist.
The themes of his works are various and unrepeatable, and it is amazing that one artist can be so different. This artist is unique and recognizable. From thousands of other works it is easy to find Aleksandr’s hand.Using the minimum of methods, he achieves the maximum of expression.
