Artist Statement

John PacovskyJohn Pacovsky

The stunning realism that John is able to bring to a canvas is often accented with humor, surrealism or a philosophical tone. Not surprising, from a man who has always considered himself “a philosopher who paints.”

What is surprising is the richness that he achieves by adapting techniques of Old Masters to acrylic paints. Attesting to his modern day mastery are accolades for his paintings at the core a long-running, award-winning Absolut vodka ad campaign, which was shown in New York’s Lincoln Center, earned him a mention in Forbes magazine, and is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian.
