ABOUT KONSTANTIN BESSMERTNY
Konstantin Bessmertny is one of the most
distinguished artists working in Asia today. His
technical mastery, achieved after seven years
of studying Fine Art in the grand academies of
the former soviet union, combined with his
detailed knowledge on a wide-range of subjects
including literature, music, history and politics
lend to his work an intelligence and a credibility
that is rarely witnessed in contemporary art.
Konstantin Bessmertny’s work is utterly unique, employing humour and candour in depictions so subtle and gentle that they require revisiting
time and time again to uncover all that they have to offer. Never formulaic or predictable,
Bessmertny uses his work as a means of exploring and
experimenting with new ideas, finding inspiration in the bizarrest of places and creating
work that continues to challenge and excite preconceived notions.
Arezu is an emerging artist from Iran.
Arezu received her BFA from
American University in Dubai and was a private student of Taha Behbahani, the great
painting surrealist master in Iran.
