“Roman Zuzuk’s pictures please people; but not with beauty. His paintings are like old friends: we do not care whether their looks are perfect, but we love listening to them talking. In fact, Zuzuk is not at all involved in the creation of beauty as an end in itself. Basic to his art is the need to communicate directly with the viewer. His pictures tell stories. Some of them are comic, others eccentric or lyrical, but they are always from our own lives and listening to them makes us feel better.
The works of Roman Zuzuk have multiple sources of inspiration. His art brings together the everyday and the extraordinary, rural and urban, past and present, reality and fantasy. The final result is a balanced artistic vision focused on men – those funny creatures with their strange upbringing, prejudices, feelings and dreams…”
