My name is Mike Ryczek and I am a painter and graphic designer working out of Boston, MA. I graduated from Montserrat College of Art in 2006 w/ a BFA in Illustration and Boston University in 2010 w/ a certification in Web Design. I began this series of small paintings in August 2011 with a desire to strengthen my painting discipline and explore areas of painting outside of my comfort zone. It has proven to be more rewarding than I could have imagined. It has also awoken me from a 5 year art "slumber" to find myself with a growing body of small works that I can learn from. All paintings are in excellent condition and painted on masonite (hardwood) which are backed with a wooden cradle with picture wire attached. If you'd like to follow me and receive updates via email whenever I post new work, feel free to visit my blog at www.mryczek.blogspot.com and sign up to the email list. All of my work is available for purchase on this site, price and other details should be located beneath each picture. Thanks!
