Alex Jawdokimov

Russian born Alex Jawdokimov has achieved not one, but three, careers in his life; he has acted alongside Sean Connery, danced professionally and is now an internationally recognised artist with his eclectic designs and paintings featured all over the world as prints and posters.

He was born on a farm in Smolensk before spending his childhood years in concentration camps across Europe. Having survived the holocaust, Jawdokimov and his mother, who had entertained British troops in refugee camps during the war, moved to England in 1947, when she found work as a housekeeper in a stately home in Somerset. Jawdokimov went on to train at Somerset College of Art.

Despite his many successes, painting is evidently his first and most enduring love. His exceptional draftsmanship is evident in each and every piece, from his earlier city scenes to the more recent birch tree series for which he has become best known.

Using a combination of oils and acrylics, the artist embellishes each piece with gold or silver leaf, capturing the luminescent quality of trees in the sunlight. Alex shows no signs of slowing down and continues to exhibit his stunning works internationally to this day.
