KONSTANTIN BESSMERTNY

Biography

Konstantin Bessmertny, born in 1964 at Blagovesthensk in the former USSR and now living in Macau, 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 employs 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 most bizarre of places and creating work that continues to challenge and excite preconceived notions.
