“We solve the ubiquitous problem of unavailable space by creating virtual places of refuge for fantasy and illusion. The boundaries you must cross to enter exist only in your mind. And 90% of all cartographers agree – that these borders are rather arbitrarily. Your companion is the visual craftsman Alexander Nikolaev, and at the end of the journey, we are what we were at the beginning – stardust.”

visual craftsman and artist

welcome to the world of my visual craft and art, where you are invited to escape for bit into a space beyond the space – normally only reachable in you imagination. As a visual artist, I blend live visuals, traditional painting, video, photography, generative art, physical objects and video mapping to transform live performances in a complete experience.

The focus always remains on the piece I’m crafting the visual experience for. Be it music, theatre piece or a specific mood I try to capture. The visuals are and additive to the the rest, they enhance an elevate but keep the focus on the subject. It’s a collaborative art form for me. And collaboration is about creating a harmony where everything blends together.

Additionally, I offer graphic design and photography services. Be it stand alone or to support the productions with posters, flyers and event documentation, enriching the overall experience with a cohesive visual narrative.

Join me on this journey through dust and light, exploring the hidden and sublime and crafting atmospheres that linger long after the final note fades and the curtain fall.
