Konstantin Vasilyev

[#768]

  • Magickal works of artistic genius

    [Note: I was completely in the dark to this divine artist until a Russian comrade introduced me to his works. It's strange and very unfortunate that more people in the West aren't more familiar with his art. Vasilyev's work is very inspired, with lot's of symbolism and love for paganism, nationalism, and even National Socialism. Here are but a few of my favorites of the few I've seen.]

    _________________________________________________________________________

    Konstantín Alexeyevich Vasilyev was born September 3, 1942, in Maykop, Russian, and died October 29, 1976 in a railway 'accident' near Kazan, although his family did not believe the official version of his death. He was a an extremely gifted illustrator, who did more than 400 paintings and drawings. His wide range of works includes portraits, landscapes, realistic compositions, Russian epics, Slavic and Teutonic mythology, and battle paintings.

    He was buried in the village of Vasilyevo, where he lived since 1949.

    The minor planet 3930 Vasilev, discovered by Soviet astronomer Lyudmila Zhuravlyova in 1982 is named after him.
