Ganelin, Sasha (Russian-Israeli), b. 1957

Sasha Ganelin was born in Moscow in 1957.

When he was five years old he started to draw historical events that filled the world of his childhood. At that time he already knew his life would be dedicated to the art. A year later he already takes painting lessons in the Russian capital so his extraordinary talent gets properly developed and trained. «Painting stays with me during all periods of my life», - claims the artist, but at the same
time refuses to determine it, because “it’s always different”. This passion overwhelmed him through all his youth, when he had to overcome difficulties and geographical distances to receive necessary tuition.

In 1974 Sasha Ganelin wins the young painters contest and gets accepted to the famous Moscow Art School. Despite being a graduate of this prestigious institution he fails to find a job, because of national prejudices. But his desire to be an artist doesn’t let him to fall into despair; he makes a second attempt and applies to the Moscow Academy of Arts where the best painters of the Soviet empire were taught.

At that time his works were exhibited in Russia, Poland, India and Morocco. Official recognition comes with the exhibition in the Revolution
Museum.

Up to the late 70s Sasha Ganelin used to work in a classical realistic genre which he had excellently mastered, but in the beginning of the 80s he realised there was a deep need for change. «I wanted my painting to cause strong feelings and emotions, but to preserve realistic rules made me short of expressive means».

At that period his works are exhibited in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. The main theme is Flowers. Sasha Ganelin’s Flowers convey the idea of the artist’s protest against the negative features of the world around him, where daily routine
oppresses and kills the beauty of life.

In 1991, feeling himself used, Sasha makes up his mind to move to Israel, – country of his ancestors.
In his art, Sasha combines aesthetic suffering and calls for a better life. His fantastic flowers enlivened by his brushstrokes seem to say: ”Look at us, We exist, We are alive!»

A symphony of colours, plead to see beauty and to live in harmony with it. Sasha Ganelin negates the indifference of the ever hurrying society. His irresistible talent makes spectators feel an inexplicable sense of protest and hope, a silent scream that cannot be unnoticed by the one, who animates the subject.
