Alex Movchun was born on March, 27th, 1988 in Ukraine. He has been into painting since his very early childhood. Upon obtaining a degree in architecture and working a few years in that sphere, in 2015 Alex made a momentous decision which would change his life dramatically. He quit this architecture job and devoted himself to oil painting. “My life got divided into ‘before’ and ‘after’. And the life ‘after’ was exactly what I’ve always dreamed about.”
At that time, thanks to a book by Carol Marine, he became fascinated by the daily painting movement and found himself completely immersed into art. Soon after, he would organize his first exhibitions and run workshops.
At this stage, his main area of work is pet portraits. Having said that, Alex sometimes enjoys painting in different genres (still life, portrait, landscape) just to change things up.
