WAYNE BREZINKA (Born 1968, Minneapolis, Minnesota) Brezinka is on the rise and quickly gaining national acclaim and recognition. Wesley Bausmith with The LOS ANGELES TIMES calls his work “Sophisticated.” Heather Hopp-Bruce of The BOSTON GLOBE says it’s “Beautifully Crafted.” As an illustrator and contributing artist, he has been commissioned by the New York Times, Neiman Marcus, The Johnny Cash family, The Washington Post and Deloitte University Press among others.
Through a unique combination of vintage and found ephemera, cut paper, collage and mixed mediums, Brezinka creates and sculpts these items into works of art.
Brezinka’s LINCOLN portrait is currently on loan at the historic Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. through May 6, 2015 and will soon be added to The Smithsonian Institution Catalog of American Portraits Documentation and Research Center. Former Vice President Al Gore, is among Brezinka's most recent collectors.
