Artist and architect, Alexander Tylevich is a naturalized American whose training and career began in his native Belarus. It was there that he completed an advanced degree at the Byelorussian Polytechnic Institute in Minsk and studied sculpture under master sculptor, Zair Azgur. Alexander's design sensibility is a perfect blend of European classical structure and of New World freedom and creativity.
Since arriving in the United States in 1989, he has created numerous sculptural projects for faith-based institutions as well as public and private works, utilizing bronze, steel, glass, granite and other materials. He is equally at home creating grand scale figurative sculpture, large glass installations and devotional objects, epitomized by his award-winning collaboration with Opus Architects in the creation of St. Thomas More Chapel at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis.
His faith-based work is notable for his lengthy association with pioneering liturgical consultant, Frank Kacmarcik, as well as noted architects and design consultants in the field.
