Pete Kornowski - INDEPENDENT FINE Artist - USA
Mission Statement: To continually produce artworks that nurture and inspire the human imagination, presented in an elegant and skillful manner. More than merely aesthetic objects, each artwork shall be a mirror of the viewers own creativity, invoking joy and wonder for those who display them. My art is purchased through personal exhibition and online distribution channels.
About: I remember always having a passion for creating... drawing, painting, design, carpentry, music; they're all intersecting avenues for my creativity. I'm hooked on the process of receiving ideas (wherever those come from?) and bringing them to life for the senses! It's addicting and fulfilling! "Making things" has always felt good to me, so that's the groove I roll in.
I get personal satisfaction from the process of creating, as projects mark a place and time within my own experience, a visual journal. I enjoy sharing my creations with other people without expectation of adoration but a hopefulness to invoke the wonder of the world we live in, connecting viewers with something inside themselves.
I am a self-studied artist. I have no formal art training and hold no degrees of peer approval. I learn a great deal from watching and working with other artists. I continue to learn and grow while surrounding myself with people and experiences engaged in the same.
Where possible, I attempt to tell stories with my art, creating the sense something is about to happen, or just has. I like imagery that begs questions; Who is he? How did that get there? Why? I don't often impart the answer, I think thats for each viewer to dream for themselves.
