Alexander Oligerov is a modern Russian artist with an impressive international career. He was born in 1965, graduated from the Graphic Art Department of the Russian State Pedagogical University of St. Petersburg in 1993. Having found his unbeaten path in contemporary art, he fell in love with the world art community due to the ease of perception and optimism of the meanings of paintings. Dispensing with strict moralizing, Oligerov combines the format of a parable and positive symbolism in the semantic load of his works, includes many philosophical observations and witty remarks to everyday phenomena. In each work, one feels sympathy for the Man, the complexities and joys of his life path.
Oligerov's style dominates to lettrism - the avant-garde direction, involving the use of unreadable texts as graphic elements. “The fact is that I was always very interested in handwriting. He reveals the nature of man, he is unusually individual, it can not be faked in perfection. In the manuscripts of great poets and writers, I am attracted not only by the content, but also by the visual component. And in many works I use text elements, because handwriting can say no less than lines and colors ”- A. Oligerov.
Since 2000 is a member of the Union of Artists of Russia; since 2009 - member of the Paris Union of Artists "Les Seize Anges".
