Александр Вабищев
Vabyschevych Aleksandr Iosifovych Born 1951 in Remel village of the Davyd-Haradok District. When Aleksandr was 8 years old, his family moved to Ukraine, Rivno Oblast, Kvasyliv village. Aleksandr finished secondary school, as well as 3 years of art school. Aleksandr’s teacher graduated from the Dnipropetrovsk School of Art, so he advised his student to study there. Despite the competition, Aleksandr entered the art faculty easily. He finished the school as one of the top 3 students. He decided to study in Vera Mukhina Higher School of Art and Design in Leningrad, but didn’t make it because of the competition. It was at that time when he got interested in graphic arts. And it was the time Aleksandr met his first wife, who was also an artist. When he returned to Ukraine, he got the job of layout artist in the art fund. There, he unlocked his potential of a graphic artist. For the next 20 years, Aleksandr was doing production job in the plant and creating his own art series. His works attracted attention of western gallery and auction houses curators, as well as collectors. 90% of that period works were taken to neighboring and far-abroad countries. When the plant shut down, Aleksandr devoted himself to his own art. Aleksandr works diligently on new series and experiments on art and graphic techniques. He constantly keeps on looking for new works’ forms. The most successful experiment appeared in 2012 – Aleksandr Vabyschevych created a series of art installations made of beer cans. This series is kept in a private collection at the moment. Now, he works in the style of Decorated Neo-expressionism.
