The Great Russian poetess, Anna Akhmatova, once said: «If you knew what litter a poetry is born from!»
To some extent this is true for Alexander Tikhomirov’s original artworks. Old window frames and shutters lived a long life and became a useless garbage. But suddenly in the hands of a talented person, they become pure Art — «Okonopis» artworks convincing and pleasing by their high quality and deserving to be exposed in museums.
