Thomas Pradzynski was born on November 29, 1951 in Lodz, Poland and died in Paris, Francein December 2007. An internationally renowned Modern Realist, Pradzynski fused a realistic painting technique with romantic subject matter, intimately combining a longing sense of nostalgia with the immediacy of the present. Through his acrylic paintings on canvas, Pradzynski romanticized the empty streets and traces of the past in an effort to preserve places that are slowly disappearing. Living and painting in Paris had brought this Polish-born artist's vision to light, and his images show that he has accomplished his goal. Fine art collectors around the world sit back and allow their hearts to reminisce as their eyes stroll through Pradzynski's deserted European streets.
It is through Pradzynski's keen colorist eye that each meticulous detail of his beloved urban landscapes reveals his personal passion. Pradzynski's paintings are often masterpieces of luminosity and serve as dramatic testimony to the artist's brilliant aesthetics. In a world where many artists simply borrow and repeat other artists' styles, Thomas Pradzynski stands alone, illuminated by his own glorious Realism.
Pradzynski's work is part of the permanent collection of the Polish Museum of America in Chicago, Illinois, and has been exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In addition, he has been the subject of two fine art books published to date. Newbury Fine Arts is proud and excited to exhibit Thomas Pradzynski's work.
