Roman Manikhin is a Moscow artist with an international name.
A bright and memorable style, is intended to convey the kindness and warm vibe, which lifts the mood and transfers to a special atmosphere of joy from gray everyday life.
Manikhin's works reflect the ideal fairy-tale world of the artist where he would like to be forever.
Manikhin creates an illusory world where objects from completely different worlds intertwine. They find common interests with the artist - mermaids can communicate with dolphins, a beautiful Dalmatian drives with a girlfriend in a pink convertible, a girl smokes a hookah with a crocodile in the bathroom.
This grotesque, together with a great love for the beauty of women, is at the heart of Manikhin's artistic style.
Having been educated in one of the oldest art schools in Moscow, Roman Manikhin began his career with works on illustrations for books.
This is reflected in the technique of the artist, who, like in the experience of graphic design, continues to think in bright colors, layering, emphasis on figures, but does it in the classical way – with oil and canvas.
Manikhin manages to achieve an incredibly bright contrast of colors and shapes due to the special technique of working with oil paints.
