About Jerome


Jérôme Romain arguably is one of the best emerging painters in France. His realistic oil canvases on hand-built frames picture the human society in all its diversity and shades. His large-sized paintings resemble spontaneously taken photos but are so much more than a quick snapshot. Picturing instant scenes from everyday life, Jérôme reverses the action of taking random photos. Instead he preserves the scenes on canvas, granting them immortality in today’s constantly changing world.

Jerome explains his work by saying, “I suppose I paint people because that’s the only subject that really interests me. Sometimes, I feel like I’m watching the world in a sociological way. People in action or in places tell us a lot about our society.”
