Grab A Rogatchi

Bolero IIf you enjoy art and have a spare £100,000 or even £8,000 or you know someone who likes to own art, then a new exhibition by former Soviet Union Jewish artist Michael Rogatchi should be on your list of things to do in December.

Described as “metaphorical expressionist paintings”, the Bolero exhibition takes place at The Gallery in Cork Street in London’s Mayfair from 4 December until 16 December 2006 and will showcase more than 20 pieces from 53-year-old Rogatchi.

Originally an expert in neurochemistry in St Petersburg, Rogatchi, now based in Finland changed direction to the arts and has built up a following for his work which often has a Jewish theme behind it. 

Prior to St Peterberg, Rogatchi studied in Ukraine, while at one point his family were expelled by Kazakhstan. But since leaving what used to be the Soviet Union in the late 1980s, Rogatchi and his wife have became active members of the Finnish Jewish community of Turku.

As well as selling his work, Rogatchi has donated pieces to the Simon Wiesenthal Documentation Centre in Vienna and the Auschwitz Historical Heritage Centre in Poland.
