  Alexander Rokoff is a contemporary figurative painter currently dividing his time between his studios in Portland Oregon and on the Big Island of Hawaii.  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 Huffington Post 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.

 All levels welcome - painting the portrait in oil - we will cover all aspects of painting the portrait in oil  with an emphasis on drawing.
