Alex Andreyev is a digital artist and illustrator based in Saint Petersburg, RF. From his early childhood, he always wanted to draw so he pursued a graphic design degree. During his career, Alex worked for big graphic design studios and advertising agencies, but he decided to focus on digital art.
After years of hard work, he even exhibited his works at Veliky Novgorod and Saint Petersburg state universities, as well as San Francisco, USA, and many more cities. He is a former lecturer of Composition basics at the Novgorod State University and a guest lecturer of Graphic design basics at the St. Petersburg State University for Culture and Arts.
Recently, he has been working on surrealist digital paintings with virtual and augmented reality, thus creating illustrations of a world beyond our minds. According to him, digital paintings are interesting because there is no influence of technology, as in fine arts, which limits the artist’s freedom.
Andreyev says that “It sounds paradoxical but digital art attracts me because it is free of technological influence. While in traditional arts technologies dramatically limit the artist, his ability to stylize works in graphics or extremely time-consuming process of paint drying, in digital painting I sit in front of a screen, grab the stylus and see the result immediately.”
Right now, he is studying 3d modeling apps and we cannot wait to see the results.
See some of his digital paintings from the project Separate Reality 17 below this text, and the rest on his Behance profile, Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram profiles, and his personal website.
