Aaron Roth, born in Los Angles (1998), moved to Bulgaria at the age of 13.

He currently works between Sofia,London and Plovdiv. In 2021 he received his bachelor’s degree in painting in the Slade school of Fine Art London (UCL) with a thesis on the visual culture of Pop folk music.

Aaron Roth works in large format oil painting, installation, sculpture and photography. The installations he creates take the place between the readymade and assemblage, they are based upon the detritus in contrast to the painting having a mimetic and ironic relationship to advertising.

The works draw their inspirations from the genre of pop-folk music, the conspiracy theory and advertisements of luxury goods. He is using those in order to explore the questions of desire, myths of nationalism and the capitalism.
