About the artist

Roman Minin was born in 1981 in Dimitrov, Donetsk region. Roman Minin was born into a mining family.

At the same time, he headed the program "Isolation in the urban space" in the Donetsk center of contemporary art "Isolation". The picture "Escape Plan from Donetsk Oblast" brought him fame outside of Ukraine. Which allowed Minin to take a significant step to combine the artistic practice of a painter with social interaction and created his own scheme of rescue from imprisonment and release from a closed social system that forbids exit. He has been engaged in the theme of mythologizing the life of Donbass and the life of miners in recent years. Roman Minin became one of the artists who participated in the painting of the facade of the new building of the Kyiv Children's Clinical Hospital "OHMATDYT".
