About

Canvas Size: 30 x 40 inches Framed Size: approx. 38.5 x 48 inches Jan Pawlowski was born in 1949 in the small rural village of Jozefowo, which is seventy miles from Warsaw, Poland. His drawing ability was apparent at an early age and he enjoyed experimenting with various art forms. At the age of seven, Jan received recognition from the Polish National Radio for the series “Pictures from Around the World.” During his early life he did not have a formal instructor, so nature became his teacher while painting in the countryside near his home. His sense of sight may have been sharpened as a result of having been born with a hearing impairment. In time he learned to decipher the secrets of color, light and form in the landscape around him. Jan began his formal art studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. The academy, which did not teach Impressionism, placed an emphasis on Modernism. Jan considers himself primarily self taught in the style of Impressionism. It is the style which he can best express himself and his feelings. Since 1978, Jan has been an active member of the Polish Artists Union and the Friends of the Fine Art Association of Poland. In 1979, Jan was awarded the “Authorization and Certification” by the ministry of Arts and Culture in Warsaw. This recognition is the ultimate achievement for Polish artists. During the 1980’s, Jan lived and painted in many different places in Europe including Paris, Venice, Monte Carlo and Germany. His paintings were exhibited throughout the region during this time. Seascapes, landscapes, flowers and city boulevards are Jan’s favorite subjects to paint. Most of these subjects are free of complications, so that joy will abound in his work. He paints “plein-air” or outdoors, and in doing so, he must work at a brisk pace because the atmosphere is constantly altering around him. It’s this quick movement that makes his paintings alive with excitement. His brush strokes are very bold and confident and a mood is created by placing specific colors in harmonious or contrasting relationships with one another. There is almost a sense of music in his work. “Rich texture creates rhythm,” says Jan. “It depends on the stroking of the brush or palette knife in slow or quick variable motions.” Jan came to the United States in 1988 for a short visit, but decided to stay because the country fascinated him. His first exhibits were in Michigan where his work was very well received. He began traveling around the country and has shown his work over the years in California, Florida, South Carolina and New England which captured his heart.
