The French artist Alexandre de Poplavsky was born in Paris on July 27th, 1991. He studied at the renowned University of Penninghen from which he graduated in 2013 in Interior Design & Architecture. After obtaining his degree Alexandre de Poplavsky decided to concentrate his time on developing his artistic career and met Chayan Khoi, an already well-known artist who helped him launch his career by exhibiting his works within a group show in Paris in 2013.
At the exhibition his works are spotted by Artelie gallery and Alexandre de Poplavsky signs his first contract with an established Parisian gallery. In 2014, de Poplavsky moves to London to expand his exposure and audience. While continuing practicing art, he completed a master degree at the Chelsea College of Arts in Interior & Spatial Design to satisfy his creativity and thirst of artistic discovery. His popularity rate being greatly boosted by the dynamism of the London art scene, de Poplavsky's works started to attract a wider audience, and besides Paris and London, he is now significantly represented throughout Europe, but also abroad in South Africa with the TBG Gallery and China with the Yudian Gallery. He participated to multiple art fairs in Europe like the Art Basel where he was represented by the Swiss gallery Samhart.
De Poplavsky works on different mediums, he makes collages and drawings on canvas but also sculptures and custom art boxes - he likes to work with newspapers, gold, silver and copper sheets. He produces modern and joyful artworks largely influenced by pop art. While his canvases are aesthetically very attractive, they also often express deeper inner observations in reaction to current social phenomenon or share an intimate life story about the model immortalised on the canvas. De Poplavsky created his signature style through the design of this unique and repeated pattern of interlaced lines found in all of his works, which symbolize the multitude of lives that cross pass and their different directions.
