Sasha Korban is a street artist that specializes in designing photorealistic paintings. In many urban areas, it is common to see graffiti that is abstract and unrealistic. This artist puts painstaking detail into each of his images in order to make them standout from afar.

The Ukrainian-based artist largely specializes in producing monochromatic portraits of men and women. His subjects span a wide range of ages and ethnicities. Despite the lack of color, each of the images feature lifelike qualities that are inspired by decorative paintings. The portraits largely stand on their own, with little to no background designs. The photorealistic paintings add a human touch to city spaces that often go unnoticed.

Korban work turns the urban environment of Kyiv into a stunning public gallery.
