The choice of his life path was significantly influenced by his father, Arkady Petrovich Litvinov, a talented artist and excellent educator. His older brother, Oleg Arkadyevich Litvinov, a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, also chose the artistic path.
From a young age, his fascination with historical and biblical literature significantly impacted the artist's creative style. He works in the style of figurative art, where the main focus is on the depiction of the human body. Alexander Litvinov's paintings bring historical and biblical narratives to life, often featuring numerous characters, compositionally arranged according to genre conventions. He has created around a thousand works in total.
In his paintings, the artist aimed to convey global events and bright ideas, meticulously searching for deep layers of historical past. The motto of his creativity was inspired by the philosopher Kant: "Enclosed life - free art." Despite a serious illness, he generously gifted his art to people, creating large-scale artistic canvases that illuminated with the starlight of his soul.

Litvinov's paintings primarily focus on biblical, mythological, and historical themes. Using brushes and paints, he narrates the eternal passions and agonies to which humanity is condemned: envy, temptation, fear, but also tenderness, affection, and the warmth of maternal love. As a skilled artist, Litvinov's portraits of contemporaries in the settings of past eras appear natural, each character fitting appropriately into the interior and costumes.
With great skill and professionalism, Oleg paints multifigure compositions, depicting scenes from ancient tales and myths. A master of painting, artist Oleg Litvinov is always in creative exploration. Although his priority lies in depicting multifigure subjects in mythological, historical, and religious themes, captivating landscapes of his native region also deeply move his soul. These places, filled with beauty and harmony, were where his childhood and youth passed. Here, he painted his first canvases and created his early sketches. In the groves near the lovely Sula River, art continues to be born, as Oleg Arkadyevich works on his pieces daily.
