Victor Spahn was born on March 20, 1949 in Paris as a second generation Russian. After his secondary studies, he worked for a fabricator of mosaics and, for pleasure, composed his first mosaic wall. His painting and printmaking are a direct result of his extensive work in mosaic techniques. His style suggests movement and dynamism as he captures the essence of a particular moment. Spahn paints with a combination of palette knife and brush and enjoys great success in lithography, serigraphy, and in the creation of hand-embellished graphic works.
