His style of painting is determined as academic modernism, but the way of Alexander Aizenshtat's kind of artists differs strongly from the traditional scheme. He concerns to the rarely met intuitive type of artists whose main impulse for creative work is to be received from inside. Complicated geography (Jerusalem, Tzfat, Paris, Rome, Moscow) is leaving specific traces on his work. He made his mark not only by his art but also because of his activity on the religious field as far as he founded Moscow Centre for Tora Studying and is rulling it last 20 years.
