The relationship between architecture and ornamentation inspires Alexander Isakov, regardless of historical or geographical provenance. A vast array of architectural patterns, structures and colors are used as prompts to give his art its character. His style is often described by delicate patterns, architectural shapes and colorful accentuations of form.
In the main, Alexander Isakov is concerned with details and sections of a particular building or works designed for specific buildings, whether turrets or towers, or in the compositions of the old masters that were created for a specific setting or building. These elements form the base of a new work. Isakov’s goal is to combine these different elements into new abstract structures and to continuously create new patterns and forms, which then (re)interact with each other and the original setting to create new perspectives. In this way his influences morph into something new, fictional and utopian.
Located in the Samariter Quarter of Berlin, the mural is a stone's throw away from Yard 5, a well frequented graffiti and art store. Once again drawing craftsman-like inspiration from the masters, and employing his signature filigree pattern accents, ‘Samariterstrasse’ takes an otherwise ordinary architectural facade and turns it into a living work of street art. The mural personifies Isakov’s deceptively simple aesthetic with a composition that perfectly integrates to its physical structure.
