About the Artist

Rossin's large scale, oil-on-canvas paintings can be found on the walls of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC; The High Museum of Art, The Center for Civil and Human Rights and the Carter Presdiential Library and Museum in Atlanta, Georgia; The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York; as well as in the private collections of Andrew Young, Morgan Freeman, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, among others. Rossin was born in Bulgaria in 1964.

 In 2001, after multiple portrait commissions and exhibitions in Japan, France, England, Germany and Greece, Rossin relocated ot the US. "My paintings don't look like photogrphs; photographs look like my paintings." Rossin's objective is to transcend hyperrealism: "All I care about is painting the truth. Like an x-ray," explains Rossin, "my brush searches beyond the façade."

Heavily involved in Rotary, Rossin has made impactful contributions through both speaking engagements and fundraising. His portrait of Rotary founder, Paul Harris raised $170,500 for the END POLIO Rotary Campaign in 2010. A frequent keynote speaker at Rotary functions throughout the country, Rossin inspires thoughtful, artistic instrospection as he finds the commonality with all humanity searching for "the God particle, the spiritual soul that dwells within us all."

"What is time but a split of a moment?" asks Rossin. 

In 2014, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery added Rossin's portrait of Dr. Maya Angelou to its permanent collection. This is his fourth painting in the prestigious insitution alongside his earlier portraits of famed actor Morgan Freeman, civil rights activist Ambassador Andrew Young and baseball's legendary Hank Aaron.

In 2015 the United States Postal Service chose Rossin's portrait of Dr. Angelou as the image for its Maya Angelou Forever Stamp.

On April 7th 2015, Rossin accompanied First Lady Michelle Obama and Ms. Oprah Winfrey onstage at the Warner Theater in Washington, DC, at the first issue ceremony of the stamp.
