Self Control
Mind versus everything else. 2017.

Based on a dream I have sometimes where, lets say I'm locked in physical conflict. When I try to fight back, my limbs and body feel so heavy that I'm forced to move in slow motion. For me, I found it was a sign of anxiety and sometimes when my feet get twisted in the sheets too tight.


You made to the about section! Welcome to my site. I hope you were looking for images of art and not of animals rolling in a stack of hundreds. My name is Oleg Kolbasov and Animal Money is my dark exploration into the undertones of the human psyche.

I start by fiddling with a pencil until something makes sense and then I scan the finished piece so that I can color digitally. Often times, I don’t have a clear idea of the drawing’s full construct until I get to a roadblock and am forced to go with my gut. It might even take me several weeks after that to really figure out what I was trying to say.

I’m open for commission and down to rattle on about art for hours so please use the form below to get in touch with me. Have a wonderful time reading to the end of this sentence.

Send me something.
