Vania Zouravliov: Dark Erotica

March 11, 2013



Russian-born artist and illustrator Vania Zouravliov was inspired from an early age by a variety of influences including The Bible, Dante's Divine Comedy, early Disney animation and North American Indians. His highly detailed illustrations are exquisitely gothic and layered with rich, erotic symbolism. The son of an art teacher, Zouravliov began painting with his mother’s art supplies when he was very young and he eventually became some sort of child prodigy.
