He has been living in Psychoneurological Asylum for the most part of his life (since 1994). There is hardly anything else known of his biography. He is communicating by the simple gestures (not a conventional gesture language for the voiceless people) which can be understood. It is not clear if Aleksey can or cannot hear.
But he expresses himself through his artworks – graphic art, 3D objects (models of houses and furniture, assemblages) and photography.
He is drawing by himself in his room, often on any piece of paper he can get. This can be a package of tea or cookies, torn old books. he has a powerful series of graphic art made on the card-files of the diseased inhabitants of the asylum.
