An exhibit of works by Franciszek Kulon at the Grand Prospect Hall opens Saturday, May 14th at 7pm. The exhibition will continue through May 19th, daily from 10am to 5pm. Grand Prospect Hall is located at 263 Prospect Ave., Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY.
Franciszek C. Kulon is a passionate, forceful painter, Kulon is influencing art through his striking ability to capture emotionalism on canvas. His artwork uniquely captures the spirit and soul of the subject painted. While often controversial, his work ranges in style from “modern realism with surreal elements,” to impressionism, to abstract.
Kulon was born in Sanok, Poland, and developed his skills in the traditional manner, studying with masters such as Bronislaw Naczas, Edward Kiferling, Marian Kruczek, and Michal Bylina. Today, Kulon lives in the Catskills, not far from New York City, and paints subject matter that moves his sensitive nature. This can result in sublimely executed portraits and landscapes. However, his art often deals with the poverty, cruelty and pathos of human existence which, according to Kulon, has been degraded through social forces beyond individual human control. His paintings have become part of museum, gallery, and private collections in Europe, Asia, and the United States.
