PowerPoint Presentation: Alexander Saidoff was born in 1970 in Pavlovsk, Dagestan, Russia His family abounded with artistic talent; many of its members were dancers, singers, musicians, and painters. As a child, Alexander had no desire to follow his family’s artistic tradition, aspiring instead to become an athlete, preferably a runner. However, on a family trip to St. Petersburg, the teen-aged Alexander saw some Rembrandts, and changed his mind: he wanted to be a painter. Upon graduation in 1989, Alexander worked painting street portraits in Russia and Ukraine. Later he moved to do the same in Italy and France, and met some American tourists who enjoyed his work and encouraged him to sell it in the United States. Alexander now lives and works in the U.S. where he is fulfilling his dreams as an artist, painting exquisite still lifes.
