New Hope, Washington, Santa Fe and, finally, Los Angeles – this is the list of exhibitions of Alexey Klokov who finally showed up all his talent to the American art market. Being a recognized artist in Russia, he counts his exhibition experience starting from 1998 in his native motherland, as well as in Japan, Austria, and the U.K. His masterpieces can be found in the private collections of famous politicians, businessmen and stars of show biz.
He got his first “blessing” from the famous Russian artist Mihail Chemiakin who visited Alexey’s exposition in President Hotel. At the same time, at the beginning of his artistic career, Alexey was noticed by French fashion designer Paco Rabanne who mentioned that “most of exceptional people come from Russia receiving future recognition abroad”. The most recognizable characteristics of Alexey Klokov art are open color technique, arch-pasty brush, and 3D format. He creates paintings using a palette knife without preliminary sketches. Art experts call his style dialects in color. In his own way the artist is giving his attention to vital aspects of human life through the figurative reconciliation of opposites, thus reflecting objective patterns of development of external objects, spirit and consciousness. With his background of a restorer, the artist uses gold leaf and high grade gold, antiques and coins. His most expensive art work is an installation made from high grade gold with an antique bottle dated by the beginning of the 20th century.
The stretcher of the painting is custom made from wine barrels bottoms. The bottle decorated with the golden label is placed on the golden rolling paper using the golden mountings, and the paper is fixed on the sketcher with the golden small screws. The weight of high grade gold is 1546 grams total.
Starting 2005 Alexey Klokov practices his own, unique method of creating masterpieces. This method is called ILG-ART (Image, Line, Gold) and unites art and success strategy. Alexey creates paintings that visualize wishes and dreams.
