Artist Antarin Gerasim Alexander

Country: Israel
City: Haifa

Gerasim Antarin, born 15.08.1974 in Saint-Petersburg. Gerasim studied music professionally (violin) and has been permanently drawing since he was 3 years old. His parents immigrated to Israel with Gerasim in 1990. He returned back to Saint-Petersburg in a few years. Later, visiting Israel, he happened to meet an old Saint-Petersburg painter whose name was AXL. AXL had lived in Israel since the beginning of 80s. He was expelled from Russia by KGB just because his Attic (Mansarda) that was one of culture centres of Saint-Petersburg was a hinder for the state system. This occasional meeting defined Gerasim\'s future life. Gerasim spent 10 years in the AXL\'s shop in Tveria, he mastered encaustic technique and had many other studies. AXL devoted himself to revival of ancient encaustic technique. He made replicas of famouse Fayum portraits that were retained intact in Egyptian tombs up till nowadays. The core of the technique can be expressed by a phrase \"..to preserve a Soul of every living thing\".
We made several joint exhibitions together in different cities and also I arranged several personal exhibitions later.
AXL had gone in 2004.
Gerasim keeps on the encaustic painting near Kinneret Lake..
