Pavel Rtue was born in 1989 in Sevastopol, Ukraine.

Pavel kept searching for his style, took painting lesons, studied the art of avant-garde and postmodernism. He began to move away from standard ideas about graffiti, discovering new approaches,
experimenting with forms and materials.
The main medium of his artistic practice is painting. Rtue is not limited by canvas, often goes beyond it , working with surfaces of different scales. The artist’s method is constantly innluenced by his
observations, stylistic experiments and various everyday objects he collects and reinterprets in his plots and composition.

The artist himself describes his work as modern abstraction and experimental muralism.
Pavel Rtue is an active participant of multiple international projects (exhibitions, festivals, auctions, contemporary art fairs).

He is actively cooperating with European galleries.
