“Photography for me is a spontaneous registration of a „micro-landscape”. A fascinating snapshot of nature with a camera lens. They are photo-sketches of nature, which I find with delight beyond the four walls of my painting studio” – Janusz Skowron, 2008
Arthur Skowron is a Polish-American artist living in NYC. He studied at New York’s High School of Art & Design, graduating as valedictorian of art. He has received a B.A. in fine arts from Queens College. Arthur has displayed his work in nine solo exhibits and over three dozen group shows.

His work has been published in Utopia Pkwy., Magazine Art, and Super Express USA, amongst others. Arthur is a member of the Emotionalism Art Group. He does painting, printmaking, and black & white photography.
“… his work stands out with daring expression. His sense of color is outstanding, and his drawing technique could easily be the envy of many artists.” - Lubomir Tomaszewski   
“Arthur puts an accomplished realist technique, enlivened by an unusual textural richness, to the service of a deeply private vision… a cinematic sense of narrative with a succulent painterliness.” -Jeannie McCormack, Gallery and Studio 2005
