The protagonist of Volya art is definetely is the outside world where every canvas is an act of admiration for nature. He is talanted to find tiny details which touch ones heart to the core in ordinary landscape and still life - those like russian classic plots or granmothers fairy tails.
There is present and past, mood, temper and nature, feeling of total reality in his art - you smell those apples you see on the painting, and you really feel the frost on your cheeks.
"At some point you will see the beauty there where you havent seen it before", - states the artist.
Alexander Volya art - is a great chance for each of us to see beautiful in oridnary, and get really impressed.
