Charles Wysocki
Born in Detroit in 1928, Wysocki enjoyed an active and happy boyhood, which is reflected in his work. After studying at the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles, he began a career as commercial artist in Detroit. He soon abandoned it for the more independent life of freelancing. Returning to California, he married and established home there.
Chuck and Elizabeth Wysocki had a great deal in common. They shared an art background and the ethic of hard work. They succeeded in capturing a rare sense of serenity that results from being content with the simple things of life. They envisioned an earlier, slower paced lifestyle in time with their own thinking and philosophy. Such are the influences that developed Wysocki's personal style of painting and choice of subject matter. He was in that exclusive company of artists whose work sold as fast as he produced it. Winner of more than 50 awards, he was in major group and one-man shows from coast to coast.
"I consider myself a painter of Early American life," he says. "The people in my pictures are country folk, simple in manner and happy in their activities. If some naiveté appears in my work, it's because it was planned that way and is undoubtedly from a desire to live that way myself." Charles Wysocki died July 29, 2002.
