Igor began taking art seriously in 2010: “At that time, I realised that art is my part of life, my weakness, my hobby, my way.” The Kiev-based artist is self-taught, replicating the techniques of favourite artists HR Giger, Maxim ‘Razer’ Revin and Zdzisław Beksinski. Igor recently began experimenting with “mysticism and surrealism” to keep his style looking fresh while working on commissions.
“Commerce often spoils an artist,” he says. “They cease to draw for themselves, for their pleasure and their soul. They just become paid tools. You can do your job, you can do commercial projects, but you must find the time for your own artwork.” 1 Rusted from the rain “I became friends with a girl on Facebook, and painted her portrait. I tried to make it look as non-digital as possible using noise and textures on a low Opacity setting. We’re not in contact any more, so this image means a lot to me.” 2 Nastya “I painted this after watching Ghost in the Shell; it’s a gift to my friend Anastasia. I think cyberpunk is one of the most interesting visual genres that artists can tap into. The pose and the face were based on a photo reference.”
