Ukrainian Artist Alex Krasky began drawing in pencil at age 5, but did not pursue his artistic ability seriously until 2009. Leaving Ukraine in 1997, Alex arrived in the United States three years later – a memorable journey that took him three years through seven countries. At the urging of his wife, Alex took oil painting classes after he was laid off from his job in 2009. It was the first time Alex held brushes in his hand. After four classes, his instructor urged him to just go home and paint; she had nothing else to teach him. He has not stopped painting since. He and his art have been featured on television news shows, magazine and newspaper articles and acknowledged by the President of the United States and other elected officials. For more on the artist, visit his website, www.kraskyart.com.
