Alexander Rokoff is a contemporary figurative painter currently dividing his time between
studios at the
Falcon Art Community
in Portland and in St. Helens, Oregon. He was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico where he worked
under various artists and became fluent in multiple 2 and 3 dimensional disciplines. This path
led to a painting style that is both sculptural and painterly. Rokoff's central focus has always
been the figure. It is here that he explores the language of gesture and expression and creates
imagery that is evocative and timeless.
Rokoff recently returned from an ongoing apprenticeship in Norway and France with renowned figurative
painter Odd Nerdrum. Rokoff's works have been exhibited in Beverly Hills CA, New York, Paris, Santa
Fe, Taos, Mexico, Central and South America. Rokoff's works have appeared in John Carpenter's film
"Vampires" as well as the TV series Portlandia and Grimm. Rokoff Studio was recently mentioned in the
as one of three places to study representational painting on the west coast. In 2012 Rokoff was one
of five recipients of the
Calligram Falcon Fellowship.
