Alexander Shibniov

From Belarus, Alexander Shibniov is the fifth generation of fine artists in his family. Born in 1962, he studies at the Minsk School of Art where he graduated in Fine Art and Applied Arts.

After an early career decorating public buildings, Alexander moved towards the tradition of fine art that has been passed down through the generations of his family.

Using a unique tempera 'paint', which sees the natural coloured pigments combined with egg yolk, and realised on wood, Alexander's compositions are embedded in Russian traditionalism. Each piece conveys a timeless narrative, with sensitive tributes to Russian culture and with a simplicity that belies an exceptional talent in both technique and storytelling.
