Roman Liška (*1980, Germany) spends a lot of his time looking at Financial Times' Weekend Issue, investigating in wealth creation, luxury, investment. His work is contemporary - some, such as Christopher Kulendran Thomas, might even use the term "beyond contemporary". Material and media is redefined - the language of painting re-thought, approached with a mature effortlessness.  
Liška is still enrolled at the Royal College. His works can be seen in his upcoming show 'Nu Balance' at Rod Barton Gallery in London, which starts on Thursday the 13th of September and ends the 20th of October.
