Alexander Belugin initially studied as a sculptor, but then became enthusiastic about water colour; he was engaged at that time in book graphics. When he turned to other kinds of paints, he moved into his” realistic period”. During that time, he was attracted by the lyricism of the life of Kamil Corot and the artists of the Barbizons school, but, nevertheless, at the same instant, his realism was settled. However, Alexander says that he didn’t want to stand still and he began to move in the direction of “open” colour. He was interested by the idea of a spontaneous intuitive process in painting.
Alexander was accepted by The Lianozovskaja art group, but he prefers his own way; as he says now, he learned from all the people he met during that period of his life. His exploration of “open” colour doesn’t stop even now. Alexander’s painting is impregnated throughout with his creative and personal experience. It is possible to tell that his art is very personal.
