Aleksei was raised in a small town called Narva in Estonia, where he lived until moving to England to do a degree in Biology and then trained as an Operating Department Practitioner.

He has been drawing most of his life and doing art full-time was always on the back of his mind. Only recently Aleksei started to pursue his interest keenly through drawing and painting every day to find his own voice in the world of art. Currently he is using anything from pencil to oil to share his adventures from traveling around the world.
