This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Aleksander Titovets has found a number of American landscapes to paint in the years since he and his artist wife, Lyuba, came to this country, however, most of his recent works are still of his native land of Russia.  His reserve of roughly 100 sketches, precious documents of earlier travels, have been the basis for his brilliant, nostalgia-colored creations.

The Siberian-born artist received a Masters in Fine Arts from St. Petersburg University College of Fine Arts, and developed classical art skills from the Russian School of Oil Painting. Aleksander has participated in competitions with the National Academy of Design, in New York, and the Oil Painters of America.

He won Best of Show in the International Fine Art Competition four years in a row among competitors in his region.  For many years running, he was selected as a guest artist for Great American Artists and Artists of America, which honored him in 1998 with the Artist's Choice Award.

Aleksander and his wife came to the United States in 1992 from St. Petersburg, Russia. They settled in a west Texas town with only fifty dollars in their pocket and no long-range plans, only a desire to paint professionally.  They began by using their apartment balcony, one at a time, as their studio.

Biography from The Adobe Fine Art:
Aleksander Titovets was born and raised in a cabin in a Siberian forest in Russia. When he was ten, his parents moved to St. Petersburg, where he later earned both bachelors and masters degrees from the Leningrad (St. Petersburg) State University College of Fine Art. His classical art skills reflect the Russian School of Oil Painting, a style that combines a powerful realistic involvement with the soft, lyrical looseness of impressionism.Titovets credits his early success to the teaching of his professor, Leonid Krivitsky, whom he later worked with when he joined the faculty at the College of Fine Arts.

Titovets was also honored in Russia with membership in the prestigious Union of Artists of the USSR.Titovets immigrated to the United States with his wife, Lyuba, from Russia in 1992.

Leaving behind family, financial security and professional respect, the couple arrived with five paintings and less than $100 in their pocket. They had no long range plans, only a desire to paint professionally. They began by using their apartment balcony, one at a time, as their studio. Within a year, Titovets had earned enough prize money from craft fairs and juried shows to replenish supplies and to purchase new materials. By 1996, he was invited to show his work at the Artists of America Show in Denver, Colorado. Two years later, he won the Artists Choice Award, an honor bestowed upon an artist by his peers.

Titovets has participated in competitions with the National Academy of Design, in New York, and the Oil Painters of America. He won Best of Show in the International Fine Art Competition four years in a row among competitors in his region, and for many years running, was selected as a guest artist for Great American Artists and Artists of America. His work is included in public and private collections worldwide, including those of actress Sophia Loren and the King of Spain, His Majesty Juan Carlos.

Although the painter now resides in El Paso, Texas, and has begun to be influenced by his surroundings in the desert Southwest, he finds his inspiration in memories of his homeland and painters such as Titian and Velasquez. His reserve of roughly 100 sketches, precious documents of earlier travels, has been the basis for his brilliant, nostalgia-colored creations.

He explains, "Like all artists, I am more comfortable painting what I know."Titovets likes to create what he calls "quiet paintings." "I hate action. Also, I don't want to do bright colors, which remind me of big signs in the supermarket saying 'sale.' Life is so intense and so speedy now, you need time to reflect on who you are and what is your purpose."

Biography from Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, VII:
Born and raised in a tiny cabin nestled deep in the Siberian forest, Aleksander Titovets continues to find inspiration in the memories of his Russian homeland. "During this period, my mind was like a sponge, absorbing sights, sounds and feelings," he says. "Although they have taken on a somewhat mystical quality, these remembrances have formed well, and I return [to them] again and again."

At age ten, Titovets and his family moved to St. Petersburg. The young artist walked the streets daily, soaking up the architecture and history of the city, and studying the art at the Hermitage. "My memories are of Siberia," Titovets says, "but that city made an artist of me." He went on to earn bachelor's and master's degrees at Leningrad State University, where he graduated summa cum laude. His artistic talent earned him membership in the prestigious Union of Artists of USSR as well as a place teaching art at the University.

In the early 1990's, the changing political climate in the USSR made it possible for some people to leave the country in search of new opportunities. Titovets and his wife arrived in the United States in 1992, making their new home in El Paso, Texas. At the time, they had only their clothing, five paintings and $25 in cash. "Life for us was like a blank slate. Although we were both trained as artists, we were not at all certain how we would make a living." However, in less than a year, Titovet's art starting gaining acclaim and recognition, and he began exhibiting at galleries and shows.

Titovets is now known for his landscapes, portraits and still lifes. His ability and talent brings the grandeur of the Siberian forest and the mystery of his grandmother's fairy tales to life on canvas.
