After having found his style Alexei Ivanov distinguished himself from his creatively infantile generation. Nonoccurrence between time and emptiness, the lack of professional conformism all the kind of qualities are hard to find. But only they give opportunities for further development. The brutality and detachment of faces and architectural objects in combination with deliberately banal names of his works are alerting for the audience. It’s provoking the latter to search for something fundamental and invisible inside the void of a painting.
