Nick Paciorek (USA)
The city of Chicago (its colors, shapes and sounds) shaped young Nick Paciorek’s world.
As a teenager, Paciorek spent countless hours at art exhibits. He continually returned to his favorite, an impressionism collection at a museum in downtown Chicago. It was then that Matisse became his central influence.
As an artist, Paciorek aligns himself with a new generation of Fauvists. He uses broad strokes of brilliant color for their emotional impact.
Each of his pieces is a celebration of light and color, a vivid interpretation of his subjects. For him, choosing the exact combination of hues for each painting is foremost.
Large cities with active skylines, busy streets and hard edges are some of Pacioreks’s favorite subjects. He’s influenced by the relationship of one building to another and the immediacy of light hitting in a certain way. Painting cafés is another means for him to represent the mood of a city.
His favorite medium is oil on canvas. Some of his best original works are also available as limited editions canvas prints, hand embellished by him. He now maintains a studio in Providence.
