ag_artist_statement : I have spent my life studying art and people. I love to paint the psychology of people, in particular when they are at their most relaxed, for example when on the beach. I try to carry on the tradition of realism- with modern, contemporary dimensions stemming in part from the influence of the European School and in part from his own fascination with people.
ag_biography : Born in 1954 in Kharkov, Ukraine. Graduated from Art Institute in Moskow in 1982 after 5 years of study. A student of student Iliy Repine, Mischan carries on the tradition of realism- with modern, contemporary dimensions stemming in part from the influence of the European School and in part from his own fascination with people. Upon graduation he entered Union of Artists and has participated in all the exhibits organized by the Union at the republican level. He exhibited in Czechoslovakia, East Germany and Poland before bringing his work to the West. His reputation as an exceptional portrait artist led him to travel and exhibit extensively throughout Europe. His exhibitions celebrate the human figure. Alexandr Mischan Moved to US in 1993. Last 18 Years he worked mostly on portraits. Has established clients all around the Europe: Netherlands, France, England, Norway, Italy. In Asia: Tokyo, Shanghai, Honk-Kong, Singapore.
ag_influences : Historical influences that have affected me are coming to the US through the cultural exchange program from the Soros Foundation during the perestroika (political and economic reform program). The stark cultural differences when arriving in the US and doing my first exhibition in Portland, Oregon in 1989 were profound.
