Manikhin Candlestick by Roma Manikhin for Normann X Brask Art Collection

About

In response to the notion that the world is too serious and short on humor, Roma Manikhin gives us a dose of satire with his saucy deck of playing cards and provocative candlesticks created for the Normann X Brask Art collection. Drawing on the styles of 20th century Italian design, Manikhin’s two candlesticks for the collection emerge as three-dimensional representations of his artistic universe. One depicts a female head, her plump lips holding the candle in place, while the other is a full nude figure, balancing a total of three candles across both her hands and her head. The pieces are made from hand-painted concrete and untreated resin respectively; their voluptuous designs charged with humor and sexual desire. About the Artist: The Moscow-based artist Roma Manikhin is known for his humorous and erotic universe, which he uses to address themes of marginal sexuality and the fetishism of sex. Bright colors, expressive forms and a touch of sentiment characterize his work, which comprises painting, installation art and print graphic design. Since 2005, he has worked as a magazine illustrator for major publishing houses. Manikhin was born in 1977 in Moscow. He graduated from the Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry with a degree in Communication Design in 2008. Latest solo exhibitions include ‘Circus Circus’ at the Art4.RU Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, Russia and ‘Herring in a Coat’ at the Grisk Gallery in Aarhus, Denmark. Item Info: Concrete mold with inserted candle cups; hand-painted finish.
