Roman Reznitsky (1978) is a Russian contemporary artist. Over a period of six years he studied in various art schools, mastering academic drawing and the various techniques of painting. In 2004, he graduated from the Higher School of Graphic Design in Moscow, Russia and in 2005 from the Novgorod State University on the department of architecture and construction.
Having secured his academicism, Roman graduated from university with a degree in Design. Having received a full artistic education, he began to discover himself in different hypostasis and as a result chose pure artistic creativity. In just a couple of years, he created his own expressive and recognizable language of emotions, colours, sex, household fantasies and optical illusions. His work balances on the edge of painting, graphic art and design: massive strokes of acrylic form the relief of the canvas, while the figurative image is applied with clear confident lines, closing the rich colours in contrasting contours, all the while creating a multi-layered perception of each painting.
Each work is fraught with two parts – visual and philosophical. Behind the bright colours and eroticism is a hidden subtext illustrating a slice of modern society. His work actualizes pop-art templates, translating them into modern language. His work is of different sizes, but always square. He targets a “thinking audience”.
