The Art of Tim Razumovsky

Recently Stuart Antony posted a great piece of art by Tim Razumovsky on the Facebook page Dieselpunk Depot. Upon seeing it I contacted Mr. Razumovsky via email. We discussed his Aurora Noir art series, dieselpunk, decopunk and more. Following are excerpts from our conversation.

Tim Razumovsky: AURORA NOIR is a personal project with all my free time invested in it. Within this project, I'm actually combining my love for old-fashioned cinema, retro sci-fi art, architecture and industrial design. I try not to lock myself creatively and I'm not committed to anything historically, I prefer not to categorize my work in a certain genre or eras, whether it's 20's, 50's, cyberpunk, dieselpunk etc. Although, I really like the DECOPUNK thing, I'll adapt it. Thank you! What's more important to me in every artwork, is strong sense of believability and atmosphere. The themes I choose to present in my works are basically tiny fragments of a much bigger picture and story that I have, which I hope someday will catch the eye of the right producer.

Myself: Would you mind telling my readers a little about yourself?

Tim Razumovsky: I'm a 36 years old digital artist based in Tel - Aviv. I started my artistic journey at a very early age.

I have a degree in screen based arts at the Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design. I have been working professionally for about 10 years now. As I mentioned earlier, I'm very much into mid-20th century cinema, art, design and architecture.

Myself: Of your different creations in the Aurora Noir series, which would you say is your favorite and why?

Tim Razumovsky: I don't think I have a favorite. I invest the best of my abilities in each piece, and of course, each one of them has things I'm proud of and things I'm less proud of. I try to act according to the formula that my favorite creation is the one I haven't created yet. This mindset helps me to try my best with every piece.

Myself: Do you have any recommendations for any reader who wishes to become a digital artist?

Tim Razumovsky: It's a bit difficult for me to give recommendations on this matter, because in my eyes -  it's a completely individual decision to become an artist (any type of artist). The only recommendation I can give is - a person who's willing to become an artist has to make sure he makes this decision for the right reason, and by the right reason I mean -  true passion, physical need to create.
