Roman Zuzuk​

Artist's Biography

Born in 1961, in the small rural village of Selets, Ukraine. Roman began drawing at a young age, his first models ranging from cows in the pasture, hens in the yard, to flocks of geese flying overhead. 
In 1980 Roman attended the Simferopol art school in Crimea. After graduating Roman moved to capital city of Kiev where he enrolled at The Kiev Academy of Fine Arts where he honed his painting technique.
During the early nineties Roman moved to the city of Prague, Czech Republic, due to its central locale in Europe, Roman’s opportunities to exhibit his work drastically increased.
During the next several years, Roman would exhibit his work, in Switzerland, Germany, Italy and of course Czech Republic. By the year 2000, Roman finally arrived in Canada, to share his interesting perspective. Telling us stories, some comical, others lyrical, mixing up the the everyday and the fantastical, in turn creating modern fables. The final result a mirroring of human and bestial forms, portraying the human pretensions of refinement. The artist lovingly celebrates our paradoxical lives and the follies inherent to human nature.
