Inspired by the beauty of life in all its diversity, Alexey Klimenko shares his brightest feelings and impressions on canvas. Russian by origin, he enjoyed a successful career working in international IT and the telecommunications business. Throughout these years, Alexey always dreamt of developing his creative side, fed by his childhood passion - drawing. Upon moving to France, he made the dramatic decision to completely change his life and devote his future to fine art.
The artist uses a special oil technique, which imitates a slightly coarse and worn surface, supported by a thoroughly prepared canvas. One of his favorite subject matters is horses and polo with its uncompromising beauty of movement and action. He aspires to create a style in his artwork that evokes various moods. Each of his paintings encapsulates its own narrative which provokes the imagination of every individual viewer in different ways.

You love a piece of work but it is much too big or small for your interior?
You like the colours of a work already sold and you would like a work in the same style?
“I am always exited to start a new commission. Every particular case is a story with its unique plot. Having some experience in interior design as a hobby, I will be happy to help in finding the best color scheme and size for the future painting. If you wishes to provide a photo of the interior, it is also possible to visualize how the final painting would look in it, even at the early sketching stage.
When I work on photographs I tend to avoid exact copying, unless the photograph is perfect or the client’s choise. You may want to change the background or adjust the pose of the horse or player - anything is possible, it’s the magic of art!”
Typical lead time is 2-3 months.
