Art Brokerage: Thomas Pradzynski American Artist: b. 1951-2007. In 1977, at the age of 26, Thomas Pradznski left his native Poland for Paris, with the goal of becoming a renowned artist. Pradzynski's interests centered around a strong knowledge of architecture and a love of art. His ideal was to "romanticize the empty streets and the traces of the past and to preserve places that are slowly dissappearing." The path before him was paved with warmly lit Parisian streets, dark windows and open doorways. The art he was about to create would not only echo his surroundings, but also communicate his passion for their preservation. Pradzynski's works explore and wander the streets of Paris like a solitary lover for whom every window, doorway and cafe are filled with meaning. Much of Pradzynski's mood is created upon the stage of old Parisian buildings and storefronts. His windows, chairs and doorways become actors whose interplay between light and shadow perform for the audience of our memories and dreams. Sadly, Thomas Pradzynksi passed away in December of 2007.
