Born in Romania in 1951, Georges Mazilu is known for his signature style linking contemporary surrealism with the art of the Northern Renaissance. Mazilu has a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from the Grigorescu Art Institute in Bucharest.
Resident of France since 1982, Mazilu participates regularly in the major Parisian art salons and exhibits extensively in Europe and The United States.
“Some features of my present art as absurdity and grotesque could find their explanation in my youth years spent in socialist Romania. In their origins my compositions are abstract constructions that I gradually build into representational images. This process permits me to sound my unconscious as I transform abstractions into harmonious structures, mirrors of my present state of mind. I try to keep my logic from interfering, slowly converting my constructed forms into figures. In the final stage the process continues more consciously as I work to create an atmosphere around the figures that completes their world, a world that reflects the complexities and psychological realities of our own environment. ”
