Art Alexeev. Born in Leningrad in 1984. Grew up in a creative environment. As a result of increasing interest in architecture and photography, as well as distinct passion towards the city of St Petersburg, an idea was born: to deviate from the traditional delivery of landscape and urban photography, and try to picture the magnificent Petropolis cityscape in an unorthodox, futuristic manner, thus establishing a certain connection between the renown 18th to 20th-century architectural complex and the fast-paced, highly technological present-day lifestyle. The final form of works presented is hugely influenced by a variety of movements in art, music and architecture, and the people surrounding them. Suprematism and geometric abstraction, science fiction, jazz fusion and techno, hi-tech, deconstructivism and dynamic architecture, and such heralds of their time as Kazimir Malevich, Maurits Escher, Mark Rothko, Ezra Stoller, Santiago Calatrava, Oscar Niemeyer, Dieter Rams, Miles Davis, Zaha Hadid, Salvador Dalí, Isaac Asimov, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Andreas Gursky, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Hans Ruedi Giger is but a fraction of what helped shape the exhibits.
