About Julian Stanczak

Julian Stanczak explores the visual, psychological, and emotional resonance of color in his Op art paintings, through which he aims to induce a “color meltdown,” as he describes: “I want to fuse many colorants and their gradations into a single color experience.” Influenced by Josef Albers and Russian Suprematism and Constructivism, Stanczak creates abstract compositions full of vibrating colors and optical illusion. Shapes pulsate, colors glow, and vertical lines shuffle and dance across his intensely energetic canvases.

Polish-American, 1928-2017, Borownika, Poland, based in Seven Hills, Ohio, United States
