Roman Pankov

15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Roman Pankov

Russian Federation

My name is Roman Pankov and I am a professional artist, originally from Ukraine, Kharkiv. I have lived in Saint Petersburg, Russia, almost all my life. My parents are also artists, so I can say that I am a hereditary artist. I graduated from the University of Herzen with a degree in fine arts, my specialty is teaching at school, but I prefer to work with adults. I taught drawing and painting for 6 years in a private gallery, now I am free floating, writing creative works, developing my style, looking for myself, and this is very interesting ! This opens up new horizons! My favorite technique is a dry brush and oil, it is in them that I feel my strength and think I can prove myself. I have worked very hard on commissioned portraits, I have filled my hand, but this does not promote me as an artist, it creates frames and deprives me of freedom. Now I am completely free and constantly experiment with techniques and styles, I study old and modern masters and learn from them ! So much to try, so much to say ! I want to learn how to transmit feelings, emotions, to transmit wind, cold, light, darkness, I think all this is possible, you just need to learn !
