Alexey Terenin was born in Moscow and raised in Prague. He graduated from the Moscow Architectural Academy in 1992.
Upon graduating, he was invited to design a stage set for Moscow’s State Bolshoi Theater’s production of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet, Capriccio. Terenin began his career as a painter with shows at the prestigious Moscow galleries, Art Moderne and M’Ars.
Terenin’s world is a rich mixture of both the old East and modern West. He sees his work as reflecting the conditions of modern man, yet his work is full of Biblical references as well as Russian literature.
Terenin has donated a piece called “Fragile” to the Charity Gala. It measures 136cm by 116cm.
Terenin has shown his work in galleries all over the world including Moscow, Prague, London, Dublin, Rome, Paris, Tokyo and now Norfolk. His work can be found, in both private, and corporate collections in Australia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, U.K. and in the U.S.A.
Fragile will be on display at the Charity Gala on Saturday night.
