In his works, Roman Minin always appeals to fundamental issues and values of human life. During the periods of deep social shifts and complex transformations, the changes happen on many levels and concern everyone, in this way or another. When world outlooks and ideologies clash and opinions become polarized, the artist calls for preserving a clear mind and being able to look at the problem from at least two viewpoints. Only in this way its real scale can be perceived. “Everything happening is ambiguous; we need to hurry to understand each other, to aspire for widening our outlook on the world and not for narrowing it. We must strive to hear each other before it is too late. Let the award for silence  be a chance to bring mutual respect and love back,”  he says
