“Gospel of the Dog”: Russian Ophthalmologist Creates Dark Sci-Fi & Fantasy Pencil Illustrations

Alexey Klepnev was born in 1961 in Ordzhonikidze (Vladikavkaz, Russia). In 1985 graduated with honors from the North Ossetian Medical Institute.

Ophthalmologist of the highest category, 35 years worked in the ophthalmological Center of the Ministry of Health of North Ossetia – Alania.

“I fell in love with drawing as a child, although no one at home drew. Inspired by rock music, mainly art rock: Led
Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd. Then there was a big break due to the worries of everyday life. About 10 years ago I felt the need to paint again, began to actively master information technology. Developed logos, vinyl album design for electronic music, music bars in Europe and even a science magazine in Scotland.”
