Every painting of Alexander Oligerov is nothing but magic. Images of birds, people and other creatures – recognizable but simplified to the extreme, are mixed with irregular geometrical shapes, intricate lines and beautiful calligraphy – the letter from the past; written in language unknown on this planet. All these random objects, combined together, first – trigger an association, and then shape crystal-clear message. But the moment you try to verbalize it, the clarity vanishes, like a moon in a light of a day.
Alexander’s works tells us simple truth. But the only way for us to perceive it, is through subconscious: surpassing all our barriers: social, cultural, personal. No wonder, his paintings are equally understood and popular all over the world – from Russia to Australia, from Mexico to Taiwan.
