IN 2000 Alexandre moved to France and worked as a graphic designer for various advertising agencies in Paris. For several years Alexandre had been working at Philippe Starck's creative laboratory where he took master class on the theory of minimalism called "Less is more".

The artist has formulated his own art theory and called it "Lines of Color". This theory gave the name to the exhibition in Adler Gallery, which, basing on the idea of spectrum, started that everything around us consists of color fragments and lines that together form the whole picture.
Alexandre calls his art style "expressive suprematism": he creates new visual dimension through the combination of abstraction and geometry.

Discovered many sources of inspiration in the complexity and diversity of the visible world, historical and socio-cultural processes. No less important for the artist is the art of the great predecessors. However, to Begma, as an artist, the shallow imitation of the past, as well as the squandering and devaluation of inherited heritage is unacceptable.
Today as more and more artists are experimenting with using light as it's own media, Begma's works are an example of how light can be used as a subject in a more traditional medium.

In his works the artist uses physical properties of light to employ it as an artistic medium. Similarly, to how a traditional artist would use a brush, Dyachkov uses a set of mirrors, prims and magnets.
Through deploying these tools, the artist reflects and refracts light in different directions, as well as alters its colour and intensity. The result of Dyachkov's manipulations is an abstract, geometrical composition, that is "painted" on the panel.

Influences of Abstract Expressionism can be seen in the way that Poloz intuitively applies strokes in these pieces. However, rather than simply reiterating said movement's visual aesthetics, Poloz builds upon them by combining these characteristic strokes with modern technology.
As a medium, stereo-light-panels have only started to be employed by artists fairly recently, most famously by American sculptor Dale Chihuly, who made an effective use of their glass-like properties.
While these properties are also utilized in Poloz's works, she primarily focuses on the panel's ability to conduct light. This gives the marks in her works, a translucent and luminescent characteristic, captivating the viewers.
