Artist Location: Jerusalem, Israel

As an explorer of the mysterious universe of oil painting, Alexey Adonin has dedicated almost two-decade to conveying his vision of hidden otherworldly realms connected with a timeless source of inspiration. Raised in Eastern Europe, Belarus, Alexey’s thirst for mysticism and love for art have been evident from a young age. Since his father was teaching at the children’s art school, Alexey began attending drawing classes and later went to art college. In the early ’90s, he and his family relocated to Israel. Today Alexey resides in Jerusalem and has exhibited locally and internationally. His works have also been acquired by notable private collections worldwide.

Artist Statement:
Alexey Adonin explores the point of convergence between abstraction and surrealism to create a channel of communication between his inner world and the viewers, not only to share his personal vision but also and especially to invite viewers to elaborate their personal interpretations and narratives, establishing deep involvement both in the emotional aspect and in the intellectual one. His approach to work is without preconception, allowing random things to happen first. Then, he takes advantage of the mind’s ability to find order in chaos or use a prepared sketch. Finally, Alexey mostly strives to get away from banal copying of reality, preferring instead to create one of his own—something that somehow reflects his inner world.
