Kustokusto is the sobrequet of Leo Stepanov, born in Omsk, Russia, in 1959. He lives in Moscow and studied art from 1985 to 1989. His work has been exhibited widely in Russia and Europe, and he was recognized in 1998 by ComputerArt magazine (Russia) as best computer artist 1997-1998, and in 2000 he won the grand prize in "Art on the Net" (Japan). His computer animations, Flash art and electronic works have appeared in installations, performances, festivals, and on his own Arthouse website. The 15 painted images shown here were done in Paint, Deep Paint, Photoshop and 3D Max. They evidence a bold and free-form imagination and unconstrained use of color, line and texture.
