Ivan "Artstyle" Antonov is a legendary Ukrainian Dota 2 and DotA player.
Ivan was born in Kharkov, Ukraine on 21 April 1989. He has always been fond of computer games, namely Counter-Strike. Dota was the start of Ivan's e-sports career. Ivan has played for teams such as Walk3r Gaming, DTS, Natus Vincere, and Darer.
Artstyle began his Dota 2 career on Natus Vincere. In the summer of 2011 they competed in The International 2011. Going undefeated until the grand finals, Navi defeated EHome 3-1 winning the $1,000,000 prize for first. Artstyle left the team in the following weeks,[when?] and eventually joined Darer. Artstyle and his teammates notably attended The International 2012, where they delivered a feeble performance as they placed last ex-aequo in the group stage. A few days later, on September 12, 2012, Darer decided to change its entire roster (because of internal, logistic and languages issues), leaving Artstyle teamless.
On September 19, it was announced that Artstyle had created the all Ukranian squad Team Kharkiv to compete in Star Ladder Star Series Season 3 and ESWC Ukraine. After a brief period playing unsponsored, Artstyle and his teammates joined Eclypsia on October 4. He became the only player remaining in Eclypsia's roster after the departure of his four teammates on November 11, and was reported to be considering retirement.
