Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Georges Mazilu

Georges Mazilu

Born in Romania in 1951, Georges Mazilu is known internationally for his signature style linking contemporary surrealism with the art of the Northern Renaissance. Masterfully executed and bewitchingly beautiful, his paintings portray mysterious figures seemingly caught in deep contemplation or frozen in the midst of enigmatic rituals.

Resident of France since 1982, Georges Mazilu participates regularly in the major Parisian art salons (Salon de Figuration Critique, Salon de Artistes Independants, etc.) and exhibits extensively in Europe and The United States.

''I was born in Romania in 1951 and earned my Master’s Degree in Fine Arts at the Grigorescu Art Institute in Bucharest.
In 1982 I escaped Ceausescu’s dictatorial regime and settled down in France. 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. ''
