Gusev Alexander Yuryevich is a miniaturist sculptor working in 1:72 scale since 2005. He was born in Moscow in 1962. He graduated from the artistic and graphic faculty of the Pedagogical Institute (Moscow State Pedagogical Institute named after Lenin). By profession, he is an interior designer. He has been engaged in sculpture for 44 years, with the main theme being Russian and European historical miniatures. The sculptor creates images of well-known historical figures (for example, the series "Rulers of Russia" - from Ivan III to V.V. Putin) as well as everyday images of people from those eras. Currently, in addition to his professional design work, he fulfills orders for several companies producing collector soldiers in Denmark and Germany, and also constantly collaborates with state museums in Russia. He has completed several projects with the Historical Museum of Moscow, the Russian Museum, the Hermitage, the Museum of Political History in St. Petersburg, and others. His works have been exhibited multiple times in Moscow and the Moscow region (in Dmitrov, Kolomna, Balashikha), St. Petersburg, and other cities, with more than a dozen solo exhibitions throughout Russia. His military-historical miniatures are considered among collectors to be the best in 1:72 scale, unmatched in terms of execution, characterized by the finest detail, historical accuracy, and meticulous work beyond human capabilities, consistently taking top honors at specialized competitions.

Their height is 2.6 cm, as they are made in one of the internationally accepted miniature scales - 1:72. Such size of sculptures allows for creating small scenes, as well as large dioramas and structures. The figures possess all the qualities of "big" sculpture: dynamism, expressiveness, and detailed work (even small facial features can be seen on the figures). The author is drawn to the dark and mesmerizing world of the Middle Ages and the military history of different eras.
