Vasile Olac (born in 1936) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts "Nicolae Grigorescu" in 1967 and after a year, exposed for the first time in a group exhibition. Since then he has had numerous appearances in other collective exhibitions (home and abroad). His name, however, is mostly related to book illustrations (hundreds of covers and illustrations for books signed by Brothers Grimm, Andersen, Eminescu Creanga Sadoveanu, Lewis Carroll, Grete Tartler, Silvia Kerim).

Done Stan is not an illustrator I grew up with, but the kind of illustrator one doesn't need a childhood history to fall in love with his wonderful characters, his great sense of colour and humor, his never stand still images. Do take a ride with Done Stan no matter what age you are. What a sunny bright journey you are in for!
Done Stan was born on the Second of December 1937, in Giurgiu. He graduated The Institute of Arts "Nicolae Grigorescu" in Bucharest, in 1964, attending Prof. Vasile Kazar's class. During 1964-1991 he was artistic editor and editorial chief for Tineretului, Ion Creanga, Cartea Romaneasca and Minerva Publishing Houses.
He was part of juries in national and international competitions. Done Stan was book designer for leading national and foreign writers, organizing dozens of personal and collective expozitions and participating in important international fairs too. He received important awards and distinctions and is considered one of the most talented illustrators of Europe.
