Born in Russia, Vania Zouravliov was inspired from an early age by influences as diverse as The Bible, Dante‚ Divine Comedy, early Disney animation and North American Indians. His elaborate illustrations are a mix of innocence, brutality, beauty and decadence, mixed with the colors and styles of communism in Eastern Europe.
Something of a child prodigy in his homeland, he was championed by many influential classical musicians including Ashkenazi, Spivakov, Menuhin and at the age of 13 years was known internationally. His first monograph was published recently by Gestalten. Currently living and working in the United Kingdom.
