My work is characterised by dreamlike other worldly natural landscapes



My work is characterised by dreamlike other worldly natural landscapes. My images are fantasy-like but with a hint of realism that evokes a poetic, tantalising and intriguing response.

My current interest is in the post capture creative process. It is a search for colours and forms that emanate from my inside, often completely unrelated to the original subject. Brush in hand, the journey of image transformation is an art form of its own. Colours and shapes are transformed again and again until the time when a solution emerges, sometimes with a tremendous eureka effect; almost orgasmic. The journey from photographic camera to canvas, my creative journey.

Since early childhood, photography has been in Dr. Martin Raskovsky heart. However, he is a computer scientist by profession, or was it perhaps the other way around?

Until now he has refused to publish his photography. 2016 saw him coming out to an art gallery for the first time. From the early days in a dark room build in the bathroom of his parents home, to the present days of digital manipulation, Dr. Martin Raskovsky’s work has been characterised by imagination, surrealism and impressionism, his photographs are many times seen as paintings. In his own words, he goes to sleep with the photographic camera near at the bed side table, when a dreams comes, he uses it as a paleXe and brush to capture what is in his inside.

Dr. Martin Raskovsky is an eclectic artist with an incomparable and complex aesthetic touch. Dr. Raskovsky’s visionary journey and passion for photography was born very early and followed a stimulating and remarkable evolution that has resulted in thought provoking, intellectual and deeply evocative works of art.

Dr. Raskovsky’s creative genius is in fact an outstanding innovation to photographic art: after centuries of technical and technological evolution, the progress of the optical instrument that revolutionised our lives seems to deserve a new dimension.

Impressionist painters accelerated the gesture of their brush strokes in order to capture the ephemeral and immediate nuances of light, while Dr. Raskovsky carries out the process in reverse: he already owns reality and, with a unique and refined vision, he transforms photography into post-impressionistic masterpieces.

Flowing waves and sinuous lines create a sense of movement that vibrates all the nuances of a wild and rampant nature. Dr. Raskovsky’s rich imagination is able to relieve the viewer from the dominant and accepted norms of photographic art and, as a consequence, he opens our minds.

Dr. Raskovsky is an exceptionally talented artist and photographer, with a forceful drive that erupts through all of his creations. This artist radiates beauty and has been gifted with the ability to translate emotions through a unique language of expressive art. He is at the forefront of digital art is an outstanding innovator, Dr. MarIn Raskovsky, shaping the future of Photographic Art. Always showing you the new!
