|I was born in Vladivostok,Russia,and studied fine arts,philosophy and languages in university.While exploring ancient cultures of the orient,and immersing myself in marthial arts and religiom of China at a Tibet monastery,I continued to develop my artistic visions.At the same time I lectured and exhibited widely in China,Mongolia,North Korea and Japan.In 1991 I moved to Canada,where I continue to work on my paintings(oil on canvas) and drawings(pencil on paper).By combining visual logic and ecstatic delirium from a tornado-stirred epicenter of calm,i mastered a magical realism of sub-mythic eloquence.Disturbances and contractions arising from cryptic and ambiguous connections are appeased by an elevated and unifying sense of color and composition.
"In my professional opinion as art historian and museologist,I realized that Alexander Donskoi is not only master of a unique style and technique of paintings,but also a scientists and explorer".
