About Me

Who am I?

I am an American Slovak fine art painter who lives in New York City. I am a member of the Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences. My Folk-Pop paintings use bright colors and comic-like imagery to make the viewer feel something special, every viewer has a different viewpoint. I like to paint in series of at least twelve to start with and keep on revisiting each series when I have an upcoming show or if a collector calls and asks for a painting in a particular series. 

    Saul Steinberg, Alex Katz, Tom Wesselmann and George Condo are a few of my fellow artists that I get inspired by. Old school and new school tools and techniques are used for my new works and are a mix of pen, ink, oils, and pencils and then brought into my ipad for the final prep for making the master painting.

An original one of a kind master digital painting is made then archived, cataloged and made ready for purchase.

My Inspiration

I am little Johnny Slovak and I sit on a bench painting many wonderful paintings as many as I can. Never really fitting in with any social scene, I had to create my own little world the best I can. I make paintings of funny people and lots of silly things, this makes people think of larger things. When I feel the brush as I paint on wood it completes a circuit of cause and effect. As people see my paintings they feel joy and happiness. Oh, the times the called me Yonko and circled me in jest, I now embrace that name that was once a funny poke towards me. I now call myself Mr. Yonko the painter of many happy things.
