Kon Trubkovich: Untitled, 2010

Work / Art

Kon Trubkovich reinvents glitched videos with graphite and oil paints

If, like me, you’ve ever uncontrollably tried to copy and paste something in real life, or move a real apple core to the trash folder on the desktop, then take a look at these paintings by Kon Trubkovich and see if your mind starts automatically figuring out the image behind the glitch. Mildy confusing but intensely satisfying, Kon’s portraits that ‘lack identity’ become all the more impressive when you realise they are created with oil paints and graphite – killer!
