Konstantin Razumov Contemporizes the Classic Painting Style

It's probably been a long time since many of you have encountered Russian Impressionist paintings, but if Konstantin Razumov had his way, they'd be all over the place again like they once were.

Studying History painting at the Ilya Glazounov's Academy, Konstantin Razumov has become a master of emulating the classic painting style, but as you can see from the images in this gallery, he still puts a contemporary spin on his work. It's actually quite refreshing to see pin-ups illustrated in this manner as opposed to the popular Alberto Vargas style that I feel is too often imitated.

Another defining characteristic of Konstantin Razumov's work is that the lighting in his paintings is impeccable, always finding ways of enhancing the beauty of his subjects.
