Artem Rogowoi’s oil and gold leaf paintings offer quiet, yet rich moments. In works like “Chamomile,” the artist’s rendering of elements such as hair or a bed of leaves carry unexpected textures. And each carries a fantastical quality, even when packed with everyday elements.
In an Artospective interview with the Ukraine-born painter, he offered this on his initial pull toward art: “Honestly I don’t remember why started to practice art, because it was many years ago and in different periods cause was be different. The first step was be art school, then art college and the finish my learners way was be Kharkov Academy Design and Arts where I was learn restoration of painting. It was important for my life, because I learned painting technology and something technical like fresco and others.So, it’s my metier and I love what I do.”
