Description: AlexanderZakharov(Russian Federation, b.1965)Misogyny, 1995acrylic on boardsigned with initials and dated lower right.

Provenance: Property of the Estate of Craig W Johnson, purchased from the Mimi Ferzt Gallery, New York.

Born in Moscow and currently working in Moscow and Berlin, the Russian master of miniature, painter Alexander Zakharov translates his imagination on to canvas. Through the medium of painting, Zakharov developed his own language which speaks of fantasy and nature, blending surrealism into the physical world, with playful imagery and fragments of playful subject matters.

Zakharov reminisces the childhood experiences, where we fantasize our surroundings, where the sky is the limit. He expresses that "I believe that in every one of us lives a child, and my paintings are about what that child loves and accepts. In my works, I talk to him in the language he and I can understand. Even the size of my works - it's memories of childhood, where all the important things in life can fit in a pocket or under a pillow, so that you don't have to part with them even for a minute."


Many of Zakharov's pieces are displayed in major public and private collections, including Fogg Museum of Art at Harvard University, the Portland Museum of Arts and New York Public Library. His collector list includes many celebrities such as Nicolas Cage, Whoopi Goldberg, David Bowie, Oliver Stone and many more.


"I invite you, my viewers, to take a step into the world of childhood dreams and living toys, so that a little me can meet a childhood you, and, as peers, we will continue the journey together," says Zakharov.15" x 40" (sight), 18 3/4" x 44" (frame).
