Anton Korolyov is an artist based in Kyiv, Ukraine who has a talent for creating immersive digital paintings that look as though they were made on canvas with vibrant oil paints.

He achieves this by carefully crafting abstract textures that supply his subjects with a sense of realism. This is done artfully with his use of abstract inclusions, such as out-of-place colors and wavy line work that takes his subjects into another dimension.

Although the many details make the digital paintings look like filtered photographs, Anton Korolyov's blending techniques add to the whimsicality further by cutting off certain visual expectations. An example of this includes his choice to make a subject's forearm camouflage into what looks to be a tabletop, however positions a floating hand over top of it.
