Andrei Roiter

Andrei Roiter (b. 1960, Moscow) works in various media including painting, photography, drawing and installation. His vocabulary mostly consists out of symbols and images related to the theme of travel, seen either as exploration or escape, both metaphysical and autobiographical.  For this project, Roiter's design refers to Pussy Riot, the Moscow performance artist group who were recently thrown in prison for more than 6 months for their activities and currently face up to 7 more years.

Roiter has exhibited broadly in international solo and group exhibitions, including Kunsthalle Basel; Elizabeth Koury, New York; Laura Bartlett Gallery, London; Haunch of Venison, London; State Museum Schiedam, Schiedam, Netherlands; David Nolan Gallery, New York;  Solothurn Kunstmuseum Graphischen Kabinett, Solothurn, Switzerland; Regina Gallery, Moscow; Galerie Akinci, Amsterdam, and Jack Hanley Gallery, New York.
