Patrick Kochanasz - Soft Pastel
Updated: Dec 14, 2021
Patrick Kochanasz studied at the Baum School of Art in Allentown, PA. After moving to Colorado in 2011, he began creating works of art that are imaginative renderings of the American West. He brings a wide variety of influences to his work, perhaps none more so than the traditional Japanese woodblock art form, Ukiyo-e. His soft pastel works combine real and imaginary elements- meticulously crafted without blending tools and uniquely edge-treated. Every work has a character and spirit of its own, much like nature itself. Kochanasz is a nationally-awarded contemporary landscape artist residing in Colorado Springs. His paintings have been collected throughout the United States and internationally.
