Alexey Kurbatov – Artist highlight

The striking and unique visuals of Russian artist Alexey Kurbatov are drawing a lot of attention and buzz at the moment. His work is  a mix of contrast detail and beautifully studied sepia-toned illustrations.


Kurbatov’s rich, bold portraits of famous historic figures are some of his most powerful recent artworks. Although visually striking, there is real beauty and incredible studied detail to his work.


His portfolio has some other stunningly beautiful pieces with ornate frame detail and water-colored effects featuring in many. Kurbatov’s work has already featured within Russia with collaborations with Moscow-based Snob magazine.
