Alex Khomski was born in Moscow, Russia.
He studied classic drawing and painting with the most famous art professors in Moscow and finally was accepted into the most prestigious and highly regarded Stroganoff Institute of Fine and Applied Arts founded by Count Stroganoff in 1825 as the first private academy of art in Russia .
After graduating Khomski worked as an Interior Designer and Mural Artist for the Russian Federation Art Fund and at the same time continued to master his painting technique. He also developed interest in the cutting edge contemporary art and was accepted in highly recognizable Union of Graphic Artists in Moscow. This organization, which was much more liberal then the official Union of Artists /major official art organization in the former USSR/ supported vanguard art and underground artists, whose work was very difficult to promote during communist era in Russia.
His first most prestigious show was held in Bonn Germany, in Christian Democratic Party Headquarters in 1988 which was titled "Bonn -Moscow, Russian Vanguard Art" and represented most important Russian vanguard artists such as Ilya Kabakov, Komar and Melamid and other well known vanguard artists from Russia. The Exhibition was held during the first visit of Russian president Michael Gorbachev to Germany and was highly regarded in German press. Two of the Alex's paintings were sold to Swiss ambassador to Germany, who later became Khomski's collector and acquired several art pieces for his vast collection of vanguard Russian art.
From this point Khomski's career as an international artist started. Then next year he was presented with his first solo exhibition outside Russia at the Gallery Doll in Kotzting, Germany. He also started to be represented by the International Gallery Reich in Koln.
Seeking artistic freedom Khomski moved to US in 1990. Since then he participated in more then 50 solo and group shows in US, Canada and Europe. His art was reviewed in many publications such as Los Angeles Times, World Art News among others.
