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. "I suppose I paint people because that's the only subject that really interests me.” 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.

What if there was a mirror that could reflect the reality of our existence? Jérôme Romain would've been the one that created it. Jérôme's work reframes those seemingly insignificant moments in life, providing a sociological reflection of a generation and forcing us to question our own behaviour in today's society.
Desillusion Magazine presents 'Memorie Selective', an insight into the mind of Jérôme Romain.
