Aleksey Vaynshteyn lives and works in New Jersey.  He studied painting and sculpture at the School of Visual Arts and Queens College CUNY. His work has been shown in solo and group shows in New York, New Jersey, Paris, and Florence.

Aleksey spent the early 2000’s working full time in mixed media sculpture and painting and exhibiting his work NYC and Brooklyn galleries.  He eventually stepped away from the art world to focus on raising a family.  During this time he worked as a graphic designer and later a creative director at ad agencies.  Having limited time for art making, he distilled his activities to what was most meaningful to him – painting.  His works are small, intimate studies of simple everyday objects, painted honestly from life without gimmicks, and a true love for the craft.

Aleksey’s YouTube channel features free lessons and demonstrations and has gained a healthy following.
