Cody Pryseski

Cody is a Baltimore-based artist specializing in portrait and figurative oil paintings. He graduated from MICA in 1996 with a degree in painting and drawing. He takes a humanist approach to painting, believing in the value of classical, traditional training and techniques. His attention to detail and quality compels him to continually re-work his canvases, until he achieves the right mood. The goal is to capture the personality, even the psychology, of his subject. Pryseski uses the impasto technique, thickly layering his figures with oil paint. This brings additional texture to the work, allowing for the artist to manipulate the play of light and rendering the figure more expressive.
