The King of Roulette painting captures a regular scene from a casino, but with a difference. Two figures stand out in the picture, claiming the attention of the onlookers with great urgency. A topless woman and the king depicted as a toothy monster grab the attention at the first glance. Behind stands a group of men with red smears on their face and invariably grim faces. It is evident from the painting that the man in the center - the king, is the winner while the dismal crowd behind are the ones losing out to the former. The crown in his head confirms his position. Nicholas Chistiakov's black paintings, like this one, employs expressionism and surrealism techniques to bring out the effect. Use of surrealism gave the painting a plane of its own above the realistic realm. Thus, even though the artist paints a casino scene, the presence of a naked woman figure, the monster casino king and the dark paintings in the background create a phantasmagoric condition.
