Igorevich Gerzhedovich

Russia • Saint Petersburg • born in 1970
Russian artist Yaroslav Gerzhedovich prefers to paint in darker tones of the artistic spectrum, creating memorable, often monochromatic drawings that are reminiscent of barren lands and something mystical. Following the traditions of classical art and fantasy style, Gerzhedovich paints pictures (often literally) of other worlds and times, easily exciting the imagination of his many fans.

In 2009, Gerzhedovich became a contributor to Shutterstock, and since then his work has appeared everywhere, from websites to album covers, making him increasingly popular.
