Roman Sustov is one of the brightest Belarusian graphic artists. Graceful silhouettes, masterful and precise lines show the uniqueness of his creative work. The artist usually uses linocut and lithography techniques.  Roman also is renowned for his ex libris works.

The main subject line of his graphics is fairy-tales and fantasy. Roman notes: “I love to read fairy-tales and actually I make them myself. But the most unique is to create images that enliven and animate words. It’s some kind of an artistic magic.”
