Portrait of KIRILL FADEYEV

Kirill Fadeyev is an artist with an exceptional imagination and tremendous artistic skill. Known as the Ukrainian Aubrey Beardsley, his elegant line drawing makes his erotic pictures of men unique and immediately recognizable. Based in Kiev, Ukraine, he works as a painter and architectural designer. A fine artist, he won many prizes as a student and a major historical painting by him hangs in the office of the Government of Kiev. Fadeyev is also the author of a number of sculptural and architectural monuments, including the monument of the WWII fallen soldiers in the very center of Kiev. He is a challenging artist and his works will often shock the viewer. But his great skill as a draftsman, along with his humor and sense of play, redeem his works and raise them to some of the most engaging works of graphic art produced anywhere in the world today.
