“What really wins over in the works of Alexander Oligerov that is the fact that he does not dresses up in anything. Because of wit brains or simple-heartedness he happily and seriously makes a declaration of love to the subject. A Man surpassed modernism. He could go further by the crooked and smooth path of contemporary Art, but thought it out and stayed in bounders oil Painting. His choice (I hope, deliberate). His right” .
