Alexander Valdman was born in 1956 in Odessa, Ukraine. At the age of 12, he relocated to the Boarding Art School at Surikov National Academy of Art in Moscow from which Alexander graduated in 1974 and then was admitted to the Surikov Academy, School of Graphics, from which he graduated with honors in 1980. Since then, Alexander worked with major publishing houses in Russia. He made original illustrations and covers for over 120 books and magazines (including the Bible and the works of Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Isaac Asimov, Gerald Durrell, John le Carré; historical novels, children and nature books, Sci-Fi, fantasy, adventure books and many others). He also produced original posters, comics, cartoons, and unique graphic works. He has continued working as an illustrator after moving to America in 1995.

In addition to his work as an original illustrator, Valdman is a prolific painter whose works have been exhibited in Europe and America (that includes several solo exhibitions). Over 500 of his works are in private collections in Austria, Belgium, France, Hungary, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Ireland and the US including the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection at Zimmerli Museum, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, and C.A.S.E. Museum of Contemporary Art, Jersey City, New Jersey. Alexander Valdman has been living and working in New York since the late 1990s.

Alexander Valdman has been a passionate enthusiast of the ancient arms and armor since his childhood, and he always dreamed about creating artwork for a book on this subject. After he had met Randall Hixenbaugh, this dream has finally come true.
