‘A Separate Reality’ by Alex Andreyev
Alex Andreyev is an artist living in Saint – Petersburg. His style is best described as surrealism, and he is greatly interested in concept-art, graphic novels and animated movies.
‘A Separate Reality’ is a series of striking dream-like surrealist images that combine two ordinary elements (for example the boats, trains or buildings with the sky and clouds) to create an atmosphere that can be seen both as serene and ominous at the same time.
This is what Alex says about his work:
“Both graphic design and digital art attract me, but recently I tend to commit to
digital art more than anything else.
I tried various techniques, including traditional inks, pens, brushes
and also experimented with digital art. Now I use Adobe Photoshop and
Corel Painter, just brushes, no fancy stuff or filters. By using
limited toolset I am able to achieve stylistic consistensy throughout
my artwork. I focus more on expresion of my creative concepts than on
technology or tools. While working in digital medium, I am free of
limitations of traditional tools, such as drying of oil paint,
changing of gouache color or etching line width.”
