“IF I COULD EXPLAIN IN WORDS WHAT I AM FEELING… I WOULD NOT HAVE TO PAINT IT” ….
Canadian-Ukrainian West Coast Modern artist/ Interior Architect / Set Decorator, Roman Rozumnyj, residing in West Vancouver strictly by choice. Born in Sudbury, ON and raised in Winnipeg, MB. and graduated from the University of Manitoba. He and his family relocated to B.C. in 1992 and slowly made their way west via a few renovations in East and North Vancouver, one of which appeared on Love It or List It Vancouver.
Inspired by the raw beauty of the West Coast and his local Eagle Harbour surroundings, his works convey pure emotion, often exploring different styles which parallel abstract expressionism, fauvism, and most recently street art and pop culture.
Roman has also established himself as an international interior designer and Set Decorator. “Art and interior design / Set Dec go hand in hand. They all require skill to properly execute the principals of balance, flow, aesthetics, and attention to detail. You need to know when to put down both the brush and the drafting pen. That is the key, knowing when to stop.”
His interior designs are minimalistic celebrations of space that feature clean lines, modern furnishings, muted whites, and natural materials. These designs merge the look and feel of a comfortable home with the aesthetics of an art gallery.
Roman respectfully labels his works ‘West Coast Modern Art’ with an edge. He is heavily influenced by strong chroma and heavy textures. Paint often raises off the canvas, drawing you in. “If it holds you, then I’ve done my job,” he explains.
