Viktor Gorbatoff (known as 'Vik') is an emerging artist from Russia. A graphic designer, digital artist and self-taught painter, he has been working for more than 30 years on his art. His work focuses on steampunk and modern mythology. He explores the inherent melancholy of his subjects in both positive and negative ways.
Vik is not bound by the materials he uses. He uses acrylics, oil, pens, paper mixed up with glue and acrylic, and various other techniques and materials in experimental and inventive ways - often on a large scale. As such he has developed a unique and easily-recognised style. His paintings are found in private collections around the world as well as being included in many group and solo exhibitions.
