Today. 13 February, is a very
important day for memory of Alexander Kholopov. In Russian there is the
tradition: “Fortieth” day – is the day when the soul of the deceased
finally left our earth. Before that during 40 days after death the soul
is still wandering around us here. And today “They” will take a decision
what place give to Sasha’s soul. And friends and closes are meeting
again, rise the glasses and recollect all the best about Sasha. Russians
believe that all that will help the soul to get the best place “There”.
Today will be the Alexander
Kholopov’s exhibition, and I ask you all who love him and know him to
help his soul find it’s last peaceful place –connect to us mentally and
think about Sasha your best recollection of him.
I will send you photos later.

How did a
USA Artist become acquainted with Russian Artists in Moscow? I
was actively engaged in artwork based on the theme of Manhole
Covers, when a colleague, Michele Brody, a designer of NYC
Manhole Covers, http://michelebrody.com
suggested that I apply to be on the “Sewers of the World Unite”
My art was happily accepted in their projects, commentaries and
I was amazed at how this unique website had evolved.

”The art of Alexander Kholopov
can be seen as
an example of the finest work
His many innovative projects
reflected his command of composition
and color, mirroring an active
imagination. The richness of
his imagery gave us
vision of the world in which he lived.
