About the Artist

Alexander Arkadievich Litvinov was born on May 18, 1967 in the city of Lubny. He graduated from the Lubensk secondary school № 1. One of his favorite lessons was drawing. I was even more attracted by studies at an art school, where boys and girls were introduced to high art thanks to the wise teachers Vasily Semenyuta, Anatoly Kharchuk, Nikolai Korablev, Tamara Moshnikoviy. Especially in his artistic development, Alexander owes to Vasily Ivanovich Semenyuta, his classical school of teaching, which he enriched in his time through his acquaintance with famous artists Alexei Asaulenko and Petr Likhin. And also an extremely important role in the passion for painting was played by the fact that Alexander's father, Arkady Petrovich Litvinov, was both a talented artist and an excellent teacher. He had 53 years of teaching experience - he taught drawing and drawing at the Lubensk school №8, many of his students connected their professions with artistic creativity. Alexander's elder brother, Oleg Arkadyevich Litvinov, a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, now lives in Odessa, also chose the artistic path.

And after leaving school, Alexander served in the army, where his artistic talent came in handy - in Soviet times, visual agitation was highly valued. He served in Dnepropetrovsk, where two personal exhibitions of his paintings were organized. While still at school, Alexander began to design books, in particular, children's literature. He received his first creative fee in the tenth grade from the publishing house "Raduga" for the design of the book by Anatoly Rybakov "Krosh's Vacation". Later she studied at the Odessa Theater and Art School, specializing in "Decoration of puppet shows and artistic and props art."

Studying at the school and passion from childhood with historical and biblical literature greatly influenced the creative manner of the artist. He works in the style of the so-called figurative art, where the main thing is the image of the human body.

A Tribute to Classical Artistry

Drawing inspiration from his profound studies and the classical school of his mentor, Vasily Ivanovich Semenyuta, as well as the influences of his father, Arkady Petrovich Litvinov, and brother, Oleg Arkadyevich Litvinov, Alexander's work is a testament to the depth of his artistic lineage. "Valkyries in Norse Myth" is a celebration of figurative art, focusing on the human form's grace and strength, a theme deeply ingrained in the heart of mythological storytelling.

The Valkyrie: Guardians of Valhalla

The painting "Valkyries in Norse Myth" depicts one of the choosers of the slain, a figure of elegance and power, soaring across the canvas. Litvinov's mastery of oil on canvas is evident in the dynamic portrayal of the Valkyrie, whose presence is both ethereal and commanding. The narrow dimensions of the piece accentuate the vertical ascent, suggesting a connection between the earthly realm and the divine.

A Canvas of Depth and Movement

Through the intricate use of color and light, Litvinov captures the Valkyrie's ethereal beauty and the solemn duty of guiding fallen warriors. The detailed brushwork and the vibrant hues evoke a sense of motion, as if the Valkyrie is emerging from the canvas, ready to ascend to the halls of Valhalla. This piece is not just a visual delight but a narrative one, inviting viewers to ponder the stories and legends that have shaped our understanding of courage, sacrifice, and honor.
