FROM MY HEART - TO YOUR HEART!!!
“Painting for Alexander Solotzew is an untiring creative process. It is not his career that simply encourages the Artist, but rather it is his destiny to uncover the beauty in
“As long as I live - I will paint” declares Solotzew, a genuine artist who lives for his art with all his heart and soul. Love, light, and color are the three vital elements that
constantly motivate and inspire Alexander. The world itself and human beings with their emotions and desires are the most important subjects in his paintings. His art emanates straight from his heart when real people and their feelings breathe life into his creations!”

“Movement is always highlighted and heightened in Solotzew’s works. The objects, figures, and color palettes have a spiral pattern of movement. His paintings depict
multiple floating figures with jagged outlines via broad brush strokes, a clear inspiration from Marc Chagall. Reminiscent of the spectacle of ballet or circus acts,
Solotzew’s painted figures appear to transcend completely the limitation of gravity”.
Aimee Rubensteen, Art Historian and Curator, New York, USA
“Solotzew’s oil paintings combine the traditional folk floating figures and Cubist space of early 20’s century, the Russian Masters like Marc Chagall and Wassily Kandinsky, with his personal vision of contemporary life. Alexander’s artworks abound with a jewel-like palette and his poetic narratives are versatile and captivating.”

Today is a special day to celebrate the quality of Alexander Solotzew’s art. Solotzew is an international avant-garde artist with amazing prospects. Knowing full well the creativity and capacity of Alexander Solotzew, I characterize him as an “artist par excellence” with exceptional talent and great potential. His unique personality is so vividly expressed in his artworks that his style will never be confused with that of any other artist. He has transformed himself through different stages in Europe and in United States where he remains one of the most prominent representatives of the Russian avant-garde. I believe that most of his artworks should be represented in museums around the world.”
Josef Kiblitsky, Publishing Director of State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Director of Ludwig Museum
“The paintings surrounding you create a bright tropical garden of love and human secrets on the faces of people, in their hands and in their movements. Love and hope
are constantly present. Solotzew’s paintings convey the vivid palette of our world – their colors, shimmering in the frames, create an atmosphere of celebration, symbolizing the triumph of human love. The art of Alexander Solotzew both screams and whispers: “People rejoice, because God and love are on your side!”

Familiar with the strong cultural identities present in Europe, Alexander Solotzew embodies a uniquely Russian identity simultaneously immersed in West European culture.
From an early age the Artist has been fascinated with the “Old Masters”: Marc Chagall, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Vrubel and Matisse.
People often refer to Alexander as a “Reincarnation of Chagall”. Indeed, deeply inspired by this artist, Solotzew continues his own song dedicated to love and affection.
For the past forty years Solotzew has remained faithful to his genuine style of figurative art that can best be described as a fusion of Cubism and Realism. Solotzew’s artworks are so unique as to be always recognizable by his exuberant color palette and masterful brush strokes.
