Alesha was born in Russia, Kazan in 1992. At the age of 16 he moved to England to study filmmaking and spent 4 years of studies closely with painters and artists. That group of young minds inspired him to start painting and to learn more about the art world which he had never heard of before. In 2012, he moved to the U.S. to continue his filmmaking degree. Two years in New York and one year in Los Angeles brought a new vision to his art and interest in the street art world.
At the filmmaking course he learned to focus on details, but to never forget about the entire picture. His style is what he likes to call “Beautifully Disturbing.” These experiences formed and developed his style in his work today. Now, Alesha lives is Russia, and continues to paint and grow as an artist.
