Alexey (Ljosha) Kurbatov is a Moscow-based graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, and artist with a unique style. I came across his work on The Cool Hunter and loved it. Something about the quality of the lines, the colors, the classiness in his portraits just caught my attention.
Ljosha achieves a sepia-toned, old-photograph look that lends subtlety and gravity to his portraits. This phenomenon is noticeable in all of the work.
His website is in Russian Russian-speaking reasders have seen many of his pieces on the pages (online and off) of Snob magazine and in other publications, also on album covers, posters and books. Moscow’s little non-commercial gallery of experimental projects, Chistka Odeshdi, held an exhibition of his work in July last year.
