City Lights by Aleksander Titovets

Russian-born artists Aleksander and Lyuba Titovets will return to Charleston for their much-anticipated September show at Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art.   Please join the gallery for the September 7th opening and reception from 5-8pm. The gallery is located at 58 Broad Street in downtown Charleston, SC.

The gallery has represented this talented duo for over a decade.   Their unprecedented work has garnered national and international attention over the years, with innumerable accolades and awards in the repertoire.  Among those honors, Aleksander was commissioned to complete First Lady Laura Bush’s official portrait for the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.

End of Spring by Luyba Titovets

Aleksander is best known for his snow-laden landscapes, inspired by his earlier years in Siberia and St. Petersburg, as well as travels throughout the mountainous western US.  His wife Lyuba specializes in whimsical still life paintings with bright hues and bold brush strokes.   While they have individual styles, they prefer to show their work together, as the couple believes their paintings complement each other and work harmoniously as a whole. Depending on what palette one is using, the other may use a similar color scheme to create their next piece, as they work together in their shared studio.

Both artists’ works are highly collectible and are found in public and private collections worldwide, including those of Sophia Loren and the King of Spain, His Majesty Juan Carlos.
