K. Danshin’s father managed to inculcate in his son a taste for art. At the age of fourteen, he enrolled Konstantin in an art school. In 1983, Konstantin entered the Fedoskino Art School, where he studied under V.N. Frolov, N.G. Marchukov and V.D. Antonov.

They have an eight-year-old daughter, Ksenya. In his free time, Konstantin likes to cook, play hockey and football, and go fishing with his friends.
