Kostyantyn Lyzogub is a Ukrainian artist based inKharkiv (Eastern Ukraine). At his works Kostyantyn combines abstract and realistic paintings, while actively using textural possibilities, bringing symbolism and allegory, his philosophical views, compositional techniques, and form to the fore in his art.
In artistic experiments, Lyzugub has based on the achievements of the artists of the Renaissance era, the guidelines for which he formed during his study at the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts. However, Kostyantyn is able to find non-standard solutions and contemporary approaches in his art.
From the first days of the full-scale invasion of theRussian army into Ukraine, Lyzogub joined the Kharkiv self-defense troops. For some time, the brigade where he happened to serve and defeat was reorganized into a reconnaissance and sabotage brigade and became equal to the troops of the regular army of Ukraine. At the moment, he continues to serve in one of theKharkiv military brigades as an art therapist. His main mission is to help soldiers improve their emotional state and cope with the psychological trauma received during the war.
Before the war, Kostyantyn's paintings were presented at numerous international exhibitions in Asia and Europe, including Christie'sauction in London.
In 2022, while the artist has been defending his country, three of his paintings were sold at charity exhibitions in the UnitedStates "Art of Ukraine" in Denver and "Sonya Art GalleryProject" in New York. The money raised from the sale of paintings was returned to Ukraine in the form of humanitarian aid.
In 2023, his works will also be presented at charitable exhibitions in Los Angeles and Atlanta.
