“Neo-romantic, fantastic realist — anchored in big, bold historical imagery, the lush, stylish, and always elegant paintings of Roman Zaslonov set our minds careening to find some sort of identifying tag. Zaslonov is like a collector of objects and images gone rampant, not bound by the laws of time or size, with teetering fantasy constructs that wouldn't hold up in any space outside his own extravagant world. His is a rarefied and punning sensuality, theatrical and monumental.

“It is extraordinary the way Roman stands out in a crowd. No other artist compares. His attention to detail, his historical perspective and his use of color are really unparalleled.”

—Kashya Hildebrand


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. Filled with 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 uniquely his own.

Roman Zaslonov’s paintings have become highly coveted and increasingly rare — often available only through commission, and after prolonged wait. Art Classics is honored to present the world’s finest collection of Roman Zaslonov’s extraordinary masterpieces. (To view, see Gallery Page.)
