Roman Petruk is a master of deep psychological artistic transmission of the human character in paints. Innovation of the artist is a masterful combination of the classical school of drawing and painting with the expressive symbolic manner of images visualization, which in the artist`s works acquires either secretly-mysterious features, or emotionally explosive force. According to the master, each of his portraits has its own performance technique. There`s someone he writes smoothly, in some places he has to scratch, sometimes he puts over ten layers of paints. He does it all in order to express the psychology of the person depicted on the portrait and to show the sound of his/her soul. The works of the artist are stored in the funds of NAOMA, in a private and museum collections of Europe.
