Alexander "Shon" Nazaretsky was born on February 9, 1981 in Moscow, but spent his childhood and youth in Korolyov.

He graduated from secondary school number 6 in Bolshevo in 1998. After receiving secondary education, he studied at the Technological College No. 14 in Moscow, where he received a specialty as a photo advertising technologist. Alexander received his higher education at the Russian State University of Tourism and Service (RGUTiS) in 2010, at the Department of Fashion and Design.

He began to take an interest in graffiti in the spring of 1998, to paint on a railway line in 1999, and in the 2000s he turned to street art. Since the early years of the 21st century, he has represented the local influential "KGB" crew ("Korolyov Graffiti Block").
During his 20 years of activity, he has decorated his hometown with many murals and picturesque paintings on technical buildings, often including motifs from the works of Magritte and Hundertwasser.
Since the city of Korolyov is named after the famous spacecraft designer who launched Yuri Gagarin into space in a rocket, Shon's works are often related to space, other worlds and sci fi.
