Romain Bernini is a French contemporary artist. Born in 1979 in Montreuil. Bernini graduated with a master's degree from the Sorbonne in 2004 where he now teaches. He currently lives and works in Paris. 


Romain Bernini has garnered significant acclaim for his figurative painting style. Dedicating himself mostly to oil paintings, the artist has developed for years a pictorial work questioning society, space, figuration, mythology and popular culture. In his recent paintings, Bernini has been apt to create a lush and enigmatic life-size forest on a canvas with plain and saturated colours. His works also represent a sense of borrowing from other cultures. Placing a number of his figures in Native American's Hopi Mask, he ties this theme to that of depersonalisation, utilising the belief that when a Hopi man places a mask upon his head he overcomes the self and loses his personal identity - receiving instead a spirit which represents universally a thing of the natural world.

Widely collected and exhibited both domestically and internationally, Romain Bernini's works have been featured at notable institutions among which are listed: Académie des Beaux-arts, (Paris, FRANCE), Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve, (Paris, FRANCE), Collection d'Art Contemporain Société Générale (Puteaux, FRANCE), and Musée des Beaux-Arts de Chambéry (Chambéry, FRANCE).
