Alexander Telalim. Sun through branches
"Alexander is an artist who is excited about what is happening both in the West and in the East – this is where his interest in the Go game originates from. Wielding the wholeness of the “four arts” – music, poetry, calligraphic drawing and Go – is almost impossible but this impossibility exactly attracts him. All four arts require harmony, rhythm, internal flexibility and imagination.
Yoni Lazarov, Chairman of the Bulgarian Go Association
Man and fishes
The pray-dream about a big fish
Depth fairy tale
Light of distant sun. Watercolor
"Telalim’s technique is unique – the transparency and lightness of the watercolor in combination with the luminosity of the metal. The golden threads interweave and form the images, then sink into the paper again.”
Bulgarian National Radio
Philosophy of Rushes
”His inherent creative freedom and his ability to reveal the internal essence of the object bring life to everything his brush touches on. Telalim’s pictures are engendered in a peculiar meditative state – both the key to the “magic garden” and the flower that we carry away from there... ”
„L’ Elsace“newspaper, St. Louis, France

Tristan & Isolde
”Figures are transformed into gestures - highly expressive, as hieroglyphs of emotions - and colors turn into light... Together with the golden strings they turn the paper into stained glass”
