Alexander Donskoy

I am a performer artist. My creative purpose is to blur the line between art and reality. I am both, a subject and an object of the artistic process. Creativity gives me the opportunity to raise controversial, socially significant topics and speak about them in the world’s most beautiful language – the language of art. I explore acute social issues – tolerance, rights and freedoms of sexual minorities, nature of masculinity and femininity, stereotypes and taboos that surround gender and sexuality. My painting “Black and white rainbow” is a symbol of oppressed LGBT communities. The Rainbow Flag, known as the Pride Flag and Freedom Flag, is an international symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, as well as a movement for their human rights. My Black and White Rainbow is a symbol of those who are humiliated, terrorized, oppressed, imprisoned and sentenced to death because of their sexual orientation. The funds that’ll be received from the sale of this painting will go to the LGBT community in Africa, which today is one of the most vulnerable in the world.
