Russian Artist Roman Zaslonov to Exhibit at Gallery KH in Chicago

Russian Artist to Have First Solo Exhibition in US at Gallery KH in Chicago

Chicago, IL, January 05, 2009 --( Roman Zaslonov: From Russia with Love

Gallery KH is pleased to present Roman Zaslonov: From Russia with Love, opening January 16 through March 7, 2009. An opening night cocktail reception is scheduled for Friday, January 16, 2009, 6-8PM. This will be the first solo exhibition of a private collection of Roman Zaslonov’s work in the United States and Gallery KH is honored to have been selected to showcase the exhibit.

“We are thrilled to have this rare opportunity to host such an extraordinary exhibit,” says Kristen Hagan, Gallery KH Co-Director. “One of the things that makes this show truly unique is the fact that the collection is privately held and being shown together for the first time publicly.”

The paintings of Roman Zaslonov have long been celebrated for their whimsical, neo-romantic and theatrical qualities. His fanciful compositions are harmonious, inventive and truly original. Zaslonov’s paintings have become highly sought after and are now obtainable mainly by commission only.

States Hagan, “All of the pieces will be available for sale and we think the response will be overwhelming, given the fact that the current wait time for a piece is close to two years.”

Born in the Soviet Union in 1962, Zaslonov studied for 13 years at the Russian Academy of Fine Arts in Minsk, Belarus. Upon moving to France in the 1990s, he won instant acclaim, including First Prize at the Salon d’Automne in 1997, and gained an international following that continues today.
