The Russian artist/illustrator Alex Andreyev creates pieces that convey a sense of ‘a separate reality.’ His artwork has a strong sense of light and colour and many pieces have a tension of man made technology and an altered nature. He also has some works involving aircraft against an abstract natural land mass/landscape.
Andreyev’s works are primarily digital art, however I still find it applicable to my mixed media approach. I find his composition and use of light and colour interesting- the technology being the main subject matter of each piece and a smaller reference to the environment.
