Alexander Shubin is a Russian-Canadian artist who presently resides and paints in his art-studio in Ottawa, Canada...
"Welcome to the World of Alexander Shubin,
upon this site's unfurled the world that he began.
In a style that combines surrealism with mature artistic humanism,
his art portrays an imagination imbued with his revelations.
A master of warm and liquid light that swirls like shadows in the night,
his bold, but flowing, strokes converge where the Old and New Worlds merge.
He paints with bold, but delicate, strokes which resemble a photographic cloak,
evidenced by his sensual nuanced nudes, who always their demure side exude."

Alexander expresses his creative mind using a unique style and techniques which he has developed living and painting in Europe, but he is always in search for a new and original manner to express himself in art. In his works Alex often uses contemporary and surreal ideas and combines them with his extraordinary style...
Alexander's love of figurative, abstract and surreal art is reflected in his work. His paintings convey artist's intricate vision and unusual imagination which outlines Alexander's individual style. His ability of breathing life into people pictured on his portraits, captivates the viewer.
The Artist- Philosopher... One of Alexander’s citation from the discussion about Hesse’s Glass Bead Game book... (Alexander's painting was used as one of the illustrations.)
«In the process of artwork creation, I find my inspirations from German philosophers; one of them is Hermann Hesse. In the "Glass Bead Game" painting I've tried to show my impressions. Thoughts about the meaning of life, a desire to be introverted from the circle of society. Our highly moral but totally useless attempts leading to nowhere...»
Alexander has been invited to participate in the International Foundation Benefit Auction for Arts & Artists in New York. His work has been presented by several web galleries and available for collection from online art stores. Alexander's paintings can be found in numerous private collections in Europe, USA and Canada.
