Svyatoslav Gerasymchuk is from the Ukraine and works as a professional freelance artist. He was formally trained in the fine arts at the Art Academy of Kiev. Svyatoslav has worked as a lead concept and 3D artist for some of the top design studios out there. He loves traveling and never stays more than a couple of years in one place. At one stage he ended up captaining a yacht across the Adriatic while creating art in his customized onboard studio.
What I like about science fiction is the idea of unknown planets and star systems and intergalactic travel. I love searching for and discovering new and mysterious alien planets populated with weird fauna and flora. An artist who can capture that sense of wonder and awe throws the doors to your imagination wide open, adding fuel to what you’ve already created in your mind. And Svyatoslav is wholly successful at precisely doing just that.
Next week we’ll be going old-school again when we feature another sci-fi legend. Chances are, you’ll recognize him if I mention his name. Or maybe you won’t. I can guarantee you’ve certainly seen his work before.
See you then.
