Notes

Al Petelin's works are an eclectic combination of styles and influences which are given harmony through a carefully controlled colour palette.

As a self-taught artist, there is a freedom in the association and references in Al's work. Don’t be so sentimental feels like a painting about paintings, with references to still life, the nude, figure drawing, pattern and design. The painting is made up of panels of colour which slot together to give a layered composition. 

Al would like his work to speak for itself. He believes that beauty can be the sole purpose of a work of art and within that one can search for their own thoughts, meanings and ideas, but, as Al puts it, “does it really matter if there is beauty as a question and an answer?"

Al lives and works in Astrakhan, Russia.
