Ivan Bubentcov | “Russian Bath” series: In the steam Room
pencil on paper, 42 x 29,7 cm, 2017

I was born in 1972 in a small town near Moscow. I loved drawing from my childhood and I graduated from a children’s art school, then from Abramtsevsky Art-Industrial College named after VM Vasnetsov (1992), then from the Moscow State Art and Industry Academy named after SG Stroganov (1999).

Now I earn as an interior designer and artist. An important place in my work is Gay-Art. My heroes are ordinary Russian guys who can be found anywhere – in a bar, at a construction site, in a forest and, of course, in a Russian bathhouse. They are a little naive, simple, but very attractive.
