Alex Kanevsky (born 1963) is a painter currently based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His works combine abstraction and figuration in multilayered portraits that capture movement and the constant flow of time, resisting adherence to a single moment. Kanevsky’s work is rooted in the artistic traditions of Eastern Europe, where he grew up, and the United States, where he now lives. In addition to painting, he also teaches at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
