Artist Statement: This piece stems from my desire to manipulate what is. Like a good artist, I present an artistic interpretative impression. It’s a sort of a visual transliteration. The photo shoot began as a series of straight portraits but following in the modern tradition of distortion, I exaggerated the meaning. The poser is actually an opera singer performing her stuff at a poetry event.
Alex Nodopaka originated in 1940, Kiyv, Ukraine. He speaks San Franciscan, Parisian, Kievan & Muscovite. Mumbles in English & sings in tongues after Vodka. He propounds having studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Casablanca, Morocco. Presently full-time author, visual artist in the USA but considers his past irrelevant as he seeks new reincarnations.
A Song for Alex
