Konstantin Pavlishin was born on October,30 1975 in Kiev and spent his childhood in Lviv. He did badly at school which could be explained by the Soviet school system that used to be kind of total production line with little attention to individuality. The boy always had his own point of view as well as his own way of perception and was often being laughed at. However he continued his education at home using his parents' rich book collection. He was excluded from the pioneer organization at the 5th form and later he was expelled from school. His parents were desperate, it meant he was unlikely to enter the university being excluded from the pioneers.
Konstantin's only hobby was painting. He started painting in the very childhood, though there were no artists in the Pavlishin family. Being a surgeon his mother wanted her son to become either a doctor or a geologist. Nevertheless Kostantin didn't justify his family's hopes and entered the School of Arts. He passed the exams with the highest grade.
During his studies much has changed: Kostantin's mother died, the Soviet Union disintegrated giving way to the democracy, the artist was given his first recognition medal and had his first order. A local Catholic church was being renovated and needed an artist. 1993 he entered the National Academy of Arts and Architecture in Kiev which was a complicated task concerning the weak academic background gained in the art school. In a year Konstantin met his first real teachers Ivana Yudenko and Prof. Vilep Chekanyuk. While studying in the Academy the young artist took part in All-Ukrainian exhibitions and hold his personal exhibitions. He made a successful presentation of his final thesis work "World creation" and was accepted to the post-graduate program by Prof. Oleksei Kozhenov.
At present Konstantin lectures to the students of the Academy in the art technology and devotes the major part of his time to the stained glass art and creating window masterpieces.
