The KonKons

I am Ignat Konstantinov, working in honor and on behalf of my late wife, Konstantina, and my life's collaborative work under the name The KonKons.

“In Art We Live" is our favorite motto. Art is our lifestyle. From our multiple travels, we gained a treasure chest of memories, cultural experiences and deep admiration from the beauty of Nature. Although these are our sources of inspiration, we never actually recorded a particular place or person. Instead, we conjured metaphorical responses to what we saw, or distilled the physical surroundings into delicate, but dynamic markings. In our collaborative works of art, the final picture is a result of a complicated process of texturing, coloring, and glazing the surface multiple times. The creative energy of two artists is blended into the canvas like trace memories or ghostly apparitions. Our approach to mixed media mirrors our devotion to the Japanese Wabi-Sabi philosophy. We have a special place in our heart for everything accidental, imperfect, or unfinished. We often incorporate found objects and repurposed materials, but our champion is our signature material - the weathered sailcloth. From a distance our unframed canvases resemble abstracts while bits of stylized imagery wink from within. Combining artistic nostalgia with contemporary expression, our work aims to bring to the viewer the salty winds from the ocean, along with our belief that love can survive any disaster and art can save the world in which we are living.
