Konstantin Korobov is one of the painters of the new generation of Russian artists.
He has a well-defined style that makes it easily recognizable and, precisely, that is what makes an artist to be great.
Konstantin Korobov was born in 1985 in Yekaterinburg, Russia. His works of art always reflects the worldview of the artist, not just an inspired search for the optimal artistic solution. Studying independently and not recognizing anyone’s influence on creativity from the local artistic environment, Konstantin was able to develop his own method in painting , in which the complex realistic technique of classical oil painting embodies the philosophical author’s subjects.
The principle of the artist is a clear and vivid embodiment of the artistic image and plot, in which every detail is not accidental and expressive in the picturesque plan, but exists in a strictly defined context, not for the sake of empty beauty and pseudo-aesthetic. Korobov symbolically expresses in painting serious, often dramatic themes, which not every artist decides to show to the viewer. Thus, it reflects the modern artificial traditional, sublime value, accessible to any not indifferent observer.
