Alice Shchelkanova was born in Saint Petersburg in 2012. Alice draws from her birthday, at age of 1.5 years old she was introduced to a water-colour. At 3 years old she discovered acrylic paint, and since then she paints. And loves it. In addition to painting Alice enjoys horseback riding and likes music and dance a lot. Very fond of Mozart and learning to play the piano. Loves to attend art exhibitions and museums. Recently, Alice began to illustrate the children's book with stories that she coined with her mother. "Little Mozart" this name the art collector from Belgium, Lieve Asselman, gave to Alice, and we used this name "Little Mozart" for Alice Solo Exhibition in 2016.
Alice Pictures - is a game. The game, as a broad philosophical concept. One of the time points in a game reflects itself on a canvas, lines freeze, intertwine, stops. The end of one game, is a start of a new one. Alice’s paintings is an experiment, this is a point in the present, this is a game in its purest form. This experiment takes the game to a new level of understanding, the game turns into art, makes it possible for point in space and time become tangible and change the future.
Each painting is unique. It has a wonderful power. Holds the space around itself. Colour and shape in admirable way tells a story, and engage us.
