Artwork location: Ukraine

Alexander Levich's "The Guard" is an evocative oil painting that harkens back to the vivid and untamed era of the American Wild West. Depicting mounted figures set against a stunning backdrop, the piece offers a window into the narratives that have captivated the imagination for generations. Levich's brushwork is refined, achieving remarkable detail that belies the artwork's modest dimensions. The interplay of color and form within this piece brings forth a sense of realism that bridges the gap between historical accuracy and artistic expression. This visual narrative not only reflects the artist's acute observational skills but also his ability to invoke the ethos of a bygone era. The bespoke frame, reminiscent of an antique, enhances the painting's presence, and the included Certificate of Authenticity guarantees the originality of this exquisite work, sized at a display-friendly 25 x 35 x 4 cm, inclusive of its frame.

Alexander Levich, The Guard

Alexander Levich

Ukraine  • 1963


“What is the most important in our life? Definitely it is not a material world that surrounds us. It is our inner world! Art is a key that opens that world for us. If you follow that path, you will learn how to see, not how to look, but how to SEE. I try to cover the true meaning with my artwork. Art is an instrument of communication, a field for your thoughts. The question is always deeper than the answer. And the answer is something for you to find by yourself. My paintings will only guide you through the pathway of your own thoughts. I attempt to offer you a joy of communication with yourself, your inner world, a luxury of harmony and solitude." Alexander Levich

Alexander was born in 1963 in Kyiv, Ukraine. In 1987 he graduated from painting faculty of the Kyiv Art Academy, workshop of Professor A.M. Lopukhov. Since 1990 he is a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine. Alexander's artworks may be divided into two periods. 

The first period that lasted for over 20 years after his graduation from the Academy of Arts, from early 90th and up to 2010, was focused on the search of something new and unusual. He was experimenting with different styles, techniques, and themes. This is how Alexander arrived at a style that is abstract, as it does not depict anything that we know or what our eyes are used to, at the same time it is also, to certain extent, a figurative art, as it shows certain fantasy objects, inspired by classical music and literature, sea travels and explorations, love and friendship… Alexander calls that style an “Intellectual Abstraction" and promises that he will return to it someday. 

Around 2010 Mr. Levich decided to go against the mainstream of abstractionism and turned to realistic artworks that are pleasant and comforting for the eyes, yet, contain a deeper meaning that provides our mind with a field for thoughts and “a joy of communication with yourself, your inner world, a luxury of harmony and solitude". 

Events and Exhibitions:

Paintings of Alexander Levich are often exhibited in various galleries. His paintings are included in public collections of Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, Directorate of the Artists Union of Ukraine, Zaporizhya Arts Museum, Museum of History of City of Kyiv, and Modern Art Museum of Dnipro. Alexander's artworks are also in numerous corporate and private collections around the world, in particular USA, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Russia, Japan, etc.

Alexander Levich is a co-author (together with Akim Levich and Yuriy Paskevych) of the monument "Menorah", erected in 1991 at Babi Yar (a ravine in the Ukrainian capital Kiev) to commemorate Jews that were executed in 1941 on the scene of possibly the largest shooting massacre during the Holocaust. Alexander is also an author of monument “For the Inmates of Syretsky Camp", erected in 1991 to commemorate those imprisoned in this Kyiv sub-camp of Sachsenhausen during the Second World War. In 1992 Alexander Levich was a co-author (with Alexander Karunskiy) of the memorial sign “In Memory of Alexey Grischenko" in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
