STEPHEN W. SLOMKO
Stephen W. Slomko is a New Jersey treasure. He is an award winning, self taught artist. Born in 1929, he waited until after his retirement to fulfill his desire to paint. His art is stunning synthesis of folk art, impressionism, and post impressionist styles. His unique and vibrant color palette visually delights and incorporates both the style of pointillism (small dots closely painted) and impasto (a thick application).
Mr. Slomko is a prolific painter but is equally comfortable in three dimensional papier mache sculpture and wall hangings. He hand forms each piece from sketches, papier maches them, and then paints each one. They are dazzling and unique.
Mr. Slomko's art is a stunning tribute to innate gifts and personal tenacity. By his own admission when inspiration strikes he must create because he is unable to do anything else.
He has won many awards for his art and is part of many collections across the United States.
