Konstantin Bessmertny

Causarum Cognitio

London08 May – 03 Jun 2010
BACK
  • A technical impresario who underwent rigorous formal training, the works of Konstantin Bessmertny address the many absurdities of contemporary living and our understanding of history through lush paintings, thick with coded references and allusions to high and low culture.

    Born in Blagoveshchensk, Russia, across the Amur River from Heihe, China, Besmertny has spent the last seventeen years living in China’s Macau Special Administrative Region. During that time he has risen to become one of its foremost artistic ambassadors, having represented the enclave in the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007.
