Considered to be one of the most distinguished artists working in Asia today, Bessmertny has unrivaled technical mastery, achieved after seven years of studying Fine Art in the Grand Academies of the former Soviet Union. His detailed knowledge on a wide-range of subjects including literature, music, history and politics lend his work an intelligence and credibility that is rarely witnessed in contemporary art. Konstantin Bessmertny's work employs humor and candor in depictions so subtle and gentle that they require revisiting time and time again to uncover all that they have to offer. His work is a medium of exploring and experimenting new ideas, finding inspiration in bizarre places to challenge preconceived notions.
