Sparks Gallery is pleased to show new work by artist Alexander Arshansky in this collection called, “Best in Show”. Join us for the reception on Saturday, March 23, 2024 from 5-8pm: RSVP HERE

Alexander Arshansky is a Russian-born artist and a recent transplant to the West Coast who works in a style he has deemed “Biomorphic Cubism”. This style could be best described as a combination of Biomorphic Abstraction, with Cubist style compositions, along with two-dimensional inner details.

Arshansky is a self-taught artist with a scientific and technical background. His artwork tells stories through hidden and overt symbolism among intricate patterns and color spaces. There is a story within a story, revealed only to those who spend time to observe. Arshansky declares: “I want to please the eye by challenging the mind.”

Arshansky is a prolific artist with over 850 paintings produced in the last 7 years. Each piece takes many hours or even days to create, however he works quickly for the high level of detail in each work. The layering and detailed imagery make his works deep and complex, reflecting his emotional state while he creates each piece. Arshansky advises, “Acclaim and recognition, although ever tempting, are not the driving motivation, rather the compulsive need for the process: fulfilling the life purpose of creating a chain reaction of inspired minds in all creative forms of expression to make this world more beautiful, advanced, complex and magical.” He created many of his pieces while working as a translator on the phone, allowing his words to flow together with the physical act of painting.

Arshansky’s works will be on view at Sparks Gallery from March 1st – March 30th with a reception on Saturday, March 23, 2024 from 5-8pm.
