Aliaksandar Belsky

In 2007, Aliaksandar Belsky graduated from the Minsk Academy of Arts in the specialty “Monumental Art”. After graduating, he took on private commissions for painting, sgraffito and mosaics indoors and outdoors. At the same time, Belsky spent ten years drawing film posters for a Minsk cinema, during which time around 700 such posters were created. He also worked as a restorer of frescoes on the facades of the church in Nesvizh and the Puslovsky Palace. For a long time he devoted himself intensively to painting portraits and grotesque sketches. Until the moment he got tired of depicting human faces. So the anonymization of the acting figure became central to his work.

In the beginning there were snowmen onto which various events and conditions were projected. In parallel, astronauts, stormtroopers from Star Wars, Batman and others appeared. Belsky is currently shaping his own mythology. He is looking for simple basic forms and how they can interact with each other, what literary, associative, emotional content they radiate. Belsky works classically with canvas and paint, but also dedicates himself to digital art.
