Roman Cotosman

Romanian born American artist, Roman Cotosman (1935 - 2006), came on the Romanian art scene in the 1960s and was one of the few artists at that time who challenged the all dominant Socialist Realism concept and method imposed on the cultures of the Eastern European bloc, imprisoned not only geopolitically but culturally, too.
