This sculptor and painter born in Odessa is metaphorically compared to Aubrey Beardsley on his own internet gallery Artgays. You are to judge whether this comparison is justified, yet, some of his works influenced by fairytales and Greek mythology prove he has impressive skills and fantasy. Fadeyev used to reside and work in Kyiv before the outbreak of the war. Now he has relocated to another place and stays safe. To support this artist, visit his gallery.
