Acrylic on canvas, thickly painted in his characteristic Electric Impressionism. Featuring a walkway bordered by colorful trees, entitled, "Lonely Walker," and dated 2016 on verso. Signed by Alexander Antanenka (Russian-American, b. 1951, based in the United States) on the lower right corner. Accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist. 24 x 30 inch (61 x 76 cm). Alexander Antanenka was born in Brest, Soviet Union on February 16th, 1951 where he attended art school in grade school, he also attended the Art Academy in Leningrad, Russia and graduated at the top of his class in 1978. Antanenka fled to Siberian City of Maganda after his parents were killed in the Chernobyl disaster, and he was displeased with the Soviet governments attempted to cover up this tragic event. Many artists, poets and politicians who did not believe in their governments practice exiled here. Alexander’s work changed while he resided in the city of Maganda and he was able to express his emotions through his artwork. Many Japanese were interested in his art but unfortunately he was unable to have an exhibition because the KGB restricted him. After the fall out of the Soviet he was able to hold his own exhibitions in different cities such as: Maganda in 1990, Vladivostok in 1992, Minsk and Brest in 1996, just to name a few. Alexander now resides in the United States and his artwork is in private collections around the world. PROVENANCE: From the family of the artist.
