About the artist:

Konstantin Kazantsev is, 26 years, young artist, currently based Saint Petersburg, Russia, working in sphere of the modern art. Konstantin uses different technicians and materials for creation of his works, basically, it is drawing and the painting executed by different materials, such as kraft, acryle, felt-tip pens, Illustration, canvas/acryle, cliche, spray cans and others.

“The main thing - feeling of the present and urgency" – so the artist, and in many respects considers, it not banal exclamation, and quite concrete thoughts realised directly in its creativity. The artist lives in 21 century and feels the time that the technician is considerably reflected in its jobs because of using modern art technicians.

Kazantsev's characters are various enough: it can be the girl holding the flower or cup of coffee, the sports car flying on high speed, kissing young pair or scenes from life of creative youth, bohemia.

Lately the artist was inspired by destruction theme which was embodied in number of the works representing broken foreign cars Lamborghini and Ferrari, as the answer to theme of fragility of all perfect in the world.

All series of the artist to some extent concern the present. On stylistics many of them remind the journal drawing, illustrations. Thus in creativity of the artist the space question is very freely solved: all superfluous is rejected to concentrate attention to plot, on action, on movement. These are validity fragments, the bright pieces of memory presented in dynamics, diversity, the dynamism executed by psychologism.
