Constantin KanskyBiography: Constantine Kansky was born in 1968. He graduated from Krasnodar Art College. Since 1992 he takes part in the art exhibitions in Krasnodar, Moscow, and Saint-Petersburg. Kansky's works are in the private collections in Russia and abroad - Germany, Israel, Turkey, Italy, Canada, the USA. To enter in the fantasy world of russian artist Constantine Kansky is to enter in the fairy tale that takes you from the ordinary life to the ideal land like Earthsea of Ursula LeGuin. That land exists somewhere near ours as the parallel reality that in mystic and subtle way appears in dreams and reveries. There are no cars and skyscrapers, TV and atom electric stations, violence and wars, homeless and "new russians". There the hot cold autumn tenderly turns into the warm summer winter.

There the tree turns to be the house, the house turns to be the rock, people knit with the land, water, mountains and the images become the plastic metaphors. The surrealistic elements tend to the doubling of the images - the man's face may look like the dog's muzzle ("Pug-Dog", 1996), the strange flowers grow through the hats ("Beyond Orthodoxy", 1997); the houses grow from the rocks ("Low Tide", 1999). The creative work of Kansky is another proof that the world is still living by the dream. He creates the image of the land where you want to live. You can see how the boats are gliding by the always calm seas and how the carnival persons leave them and start to fish or to play on the flutes, violins or strange guitars.
