Nick Paciorek aligns himself with a new generation of Fauvists using broad strokes of brilliant color to create emotional impact. His paintings are a celebration of light and color, a vivid interpretation of of his subjects. Choosing the exact combination of hues for each painting is foremost. Large cities with active skylines, busy streets, and hard edges are Paciorek’s favorite subjects. Influenced by the relationship of one building to another and the immediacy of light hitting in a certain way, he finds that a particular street may represent the entire mood of a city.

Paciorek attended the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art. He later earned his BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art. He has participated in many group and solo exhibitions primarily on the east coast and has been published in many art magazines such as American Artist and NBC’s Olympic Inspiration to name a few. He has participated in many group and solo exhibitions primarily on the east coast.

I continually returned to my favorite Impressionism collection at a museum in downtown Chicago. I was so impacted by the ability of an artist to control the world on canvas simply through color choice. It was then that Matisse became my central influence.
