I’m Alex Archipov and I’ve been a student at LOL for 9 years now. I’m a local teen artist and filmmaker and a definite origami folding enthusiast. For one of my latest short films called “Cranes” I folded over 350 origami cranes! My work has been featured at The Museum of Fine Arts Saint Petersburg, The Dali Museum, Tampa Museum of Arts and Artpool Gallery. I’ve also received scholarships for the past 2 years to study at Savannah College of Art and Designs summer seminar. For the past 4 years I’ve been volunteering at The Morean Arts center and I absolutely love teaching art because I feel it’s an amazing way to help students find their own voice and express themselves.
