On his ArtStation profile, the Russian artist describes himself soberly as someone who “draws from time to time”. His works, however, are not sober. They ask questions as much as they fascinate: what did this character do to deserve a murderous gift? Why is another one participating in a pig race? It is difficult not to detect a hint of absurdity in these paintings, such as the one entitled A Spy, where the obese spy has many difficulties hiding behind this fine tree.
Each of Eugene Korolev’s creations seems to draw from a particular inspiration. From the representation of the everyday to the fantastic, from the street-art universe to political denunciation: everything passes under the brush of Eugene Korolev. Everyone is free to make their own interpretation of it.
