The AEYA Story
In the early 1980s…

Alexandre attended the prestigious Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg Russia where he trained in the Classical arts, and this gave him an astute taste and an obsession for quality paintings.

After earning and completing a undergraduate & graduate degree in the Academy of Arts, Alexandre began exploring diverse styles which produced highly textured paintings with the use of bold colors. The years to follow, Alexandre was engulfed in this creative process which enabled him to produce and create diverse paintings through different mediums, including engraved canvases outlining his iconic drawing style and a rare collection of gold-waxed paintings.

Instead of pursuing the professorship which was offered to him by the school, Sasha (as the artist is often called) decided to put his interest as a career and ventured to Toronto, Canada, opening his first independent studio self-named Alexandre Studio. He made a bold move to the now famous Queen Street West in downtown toronto. Yet the central location was convenient for all and soon he established a reputation as a fiercely gifted international painter whose use of bold textures introduced a wealth of people to his vivid pieces.

In the late 90′s-early 2000′s…

The art world was booming and everyone was talking about the internet. It was a new marketing tool and a new era in business. Alexandre contacted some students and the first Studio website was set up. It opened the doors of Alexandre’s work to the world, moreover, it introduced the world to the con-current selections of the artist’s paintings. For the first time, people from South America and thousands of clients from more than 50 different countries as far north as Iceland & down south as Cape Town and Japan to the Caribbean islands.

Entangled - Aeya

While others focused on the undetermined contemporary art that floods the market, AEYA Studios offered fine art pieces created by the master painter himself. This proved to be a
phenomenal success and a steady group of regulars from the region visited us. Aeya Studios is expanding and in the near future clients will be able to purchase original
paintings, encaustics, as well as drawings and limited edition reproductions on our website!

The name AEYA {ah’eh’ya} derives from the painter’s name Alexandre Evgrafov.
