Fedir Alexandrovich (b. 1982, Kyiv), is a Ukrainian artist and a faculty member at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kyiv, institution, that once hosted such important avant-garde figures as Kazimir Malevich and Vladimir Tatlin.
Alexandrovich’s art aims at capturing the intensity of emotions and communicating the depths of human suffering, while remaining in a perpetual quest for the ultimate truth of being. His art has been shaped by his keen interest in Ukrainian and European avant-garde and influenced by German Expressionism, Kazemir Malevich’s Suprematism and Vladimir Tatlin’s Constructivism.
His crossover into theater production design has been an extension of his fascination with Ukrainian artists Anatol Petrytsky, Aleksandra Exter, Aleksander Bogomazov, whose art was both an inspiration and a vehicle for the avant-garde theater in 1920s Ukraine. Among contemporary influences, Alexandrovich cites Pierre Soulages, whose work Black Lights once left a lasting impression on him as a student of art.
A prolific artist, Alexandrovich has designed over 40 theater productions in Ukraine and Germany, participated in more than 50 art exhibitions in galleries and museums across Ukraine, France, Germany, Jordan, and Lithuania.
A poet and a writer, he has published several poetry collections in Ukraine.
Fedir Alexandrovich is the subject of a documentary feature “Russian Woodpecker”, a winner of the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize at 2015 Sundance Film Festival, that investigates the cause of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine.
