Paul  Chojnowski

Paul Chojnowski lives in New England and exhibits his art in New York, Atlanta, San Francisco and other cities. Throughout his career he has used nontraditional materials and tools in his art making. His current work: fire drawings evolved as a result of his conscious effort to embrace art historical traditions while rejecting the traditional processes. “Though my work has a unique appearance, it is not an aspect of style—it is a result of this volatile and unforgiving process. I burn, scorch, re-burn, sand and scratch the surface of paper or wood trying to coax from it simple vivid images.”
