About the author
The most apt description of Roman Averintsev's work is primitive expressionism. His work is characterised by bright, pure colours and a bold, brash undertone that does not try to cover up or mask. Moreover, he often uses the contrasting black outline favoured by Gauguin, one of the first Expressionists.
The artist's works are born out of a wide variety of everyday experiences and memories, and he can tell a separate story about each of his works. The subjects of his works often reflect impressions from his long journeys and creative explorations. They are not only events, but also people, their relationships and feelings. He tries to reveal what each of them is experiencing and feeling, he is not afraid of being misunderstood, but he wants us to believe in him and empathise with his work.
Since 2004, the artist has participated in professional exhibitions and has had 6 solo exhibitions.
