Alexander Shurinov was born into the family of a military man in Cherkassy region, the family moving to Crimea in 1953. He attended Samokish School of Art until 1972, subsequent studies at Lvov Polygraphic Institute. He has been participating since 1973 in city, regional and international exhibitions and since 1988 has been a member of the Union of Artists of Russia and then Ukraine. Shurinov’s work is concerned primarily with the Crimean landscape. With his natural eye for composition he captures the beauty of the region through the changing seasons, especially its most remote and unspoilt corners with great passion and with frequent yet sensitive use of impasto to convey the features of the land. He is also a particularly fine exponent of still-life. Shurinov is furthermore, a highly regarded teacher of art. Works are displayed at Art Museum Simferopol and Kroshitsky Museum Sevastopol.
