Roman Zaslonov is one of the most celebrated artists of our time. Born in 1962, he studied for 13 years at the Russian Academy of Fine Arts in Minsk. Upon moving to France, he won instant acclaim (including First prize at the Salon d"Automne in 1997) and gained a vast international following.
His paintings are stunning --- visually, intellectually and emotionally arresting. They are filled with the most fantastic imagination and wit. His work has been variously described as surrealist, fantastical, neo-romantic, theatrical --- but it defies categorization. Zaslonov is in a world that is entirely his own.
