Russian Artist Alexander Abromov Transforms from Twink to Muscle Daddy

“I hope these beautiful images will resonate and inspire people to be the best versions of themselves, inside and out..." - Alexander Abromov

Russian artist and producer Alexander Abromov (better known as Abromov Lex) bares all in “Uncovered,” a coming of age story about a man who isn’t afraid to speak his truth, follow through with his vision and be exposed, body and soul.

His current looks didn’t come easy. “I grew up a very sick child,” he reflects. “I had problems with my lungs and at the age of 13, I underwent a serious operation on my intestines, which left me hospitalized for four months and put an end to my normal existence as a man. I was tall, 6’2”, but very skinny, probably around 130 pounds.”‘

It wasn’t until Alexander was 20 that he started to think about going to the gym. It took over 10 years to get to his current weight of 230 pounds. He is finally at a point where he feels confident with his body. Still, posing for nude photos was something he had never done before. “Because I have known Dima [Boacharov] for many years and he and I have done many photo projects together, it was not hard for me to take my clothes off. What was hard was to be naturally sexy, appear relaxed and to not pose too much. Of course, it is very difficult to surprise people in the age of universal exhibitionism, but these nude images that we captured definitely deserve some attention,” he shared in a release about the new photo book.

This five-part series of art books tells his story through five characters, a Wrangler, a Mercenary, a Woodsman, a Journeyman, and a Seafarer, in unique worlds full of action and emotion. Over 5,000 pictures were taken by celebrated Russian photographer Dima Bocharov and inspiration for the notes accompanying the images were taken from Abromov’s personal diary. “I started keeping journals 18 years ago. My diary is about awareness of my homosexuality, about my experiences and explorations of the world: first feelings, first love, first sexual encounter… It is also about human imperfection and struggle, drugs and fears, scars and past troubles. On the whole, it tells of becoming the man I have wanted to be: a man who is able to inspire others to makes changes for the better.”

As a gay man who was born in the Republic of Kazakhstan and lived his young adult life in Russia, Alexander Abramov knows from experience the horrible situation with gay rights in these countries. For this reason, he is donating 10% of proceeds to The Russian LGBT Network, to help protect the gay youth of his native countries. The Russian LGBT Network is an interregional, non- governmental human rights organization that promotes equal rights and respect for human dignity, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.
