…and let the art of Alex Kuznetsov take possession of you.
Born in 1978 in former USSR, Alex Kuznetsov is one of the first graffiti writers of his country. With almost 15 years of spray paint practice, Kuznetsov travels all around the world creating murals. You may know him under many names: Iks, Temos, Monk, Awek and more. With so much experience, classic graffiti holds no secrets from him and since 2010, Alex Kuznetsov has been offering us his vision of using the spray can as a new medium for artists to explore.

Kuznetsov demonstrates that there is no need for letters or characters to affect the viewer and start a dialogue. For him, he convinces us of this with the power of abstract painting. And it works- can you feel the energy of the gesture? The expression of his body in action? The way he explores, controls the surface, and lets the colors cross over each other? It is wonderful to see the many expressions of spray paint on canvas.
Alex Kuznetsov’s works will be presented beside a incredible line up of international artists gathered by curator Poesia and exhibiting at 1AM Gallery in the ambitious group show titled “A Major Minority – an Intercontinental Survey of Neo Contemporary Urban Art” opening on March 14th. Come embrace the movement too!
