Konstantin Khudyakov is a member of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Arts, an Honored Artist of Russia, one of the first representatives of digital art in Russia. His works are in the collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum, the Museum of Modern Art (Vienna, Austria). The Last Supper by Konstantin set an absolute record at Phillips auction in 2011 – it was sold for US$ 76,000. One of the characteristic features of his works is the use of 3D modeling software to implement his ideas and images by developing 3D models. The result is transferred onto a canvas or a metal sheet with the help of digital printing. This surrealistic work Dama and Blade II was created in collaboration with Alexander Sploshnov whose project is in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest 3D project in the world. The distorted space, multiple fractures of reflections that the artist calls ‘virtual mirrors of reality’ hinder integral perception. Geometric distortions of the plane and depth, the use of checkerboard and other optical defects pass from one project into another underlying the influence of optical art on the one hand and warm memories of the constructivism of the 1920s on the other.
