Through a variety of vibrant colors and contrasting aesthetics, he has described his work as a “chaotic balance.” Known for utilizing mixed media and bright colors against dark canvases he seeks to portray the complexities humanity.

Polish-born Obrycki specialty is in watercolors and utilizing mixed media techniques, tending to weave words and/ or letters into his art work. It’s akin to graffiti style art, which sometimes is discredited for not truly being “art”. Somewhere between abstract and representational painting, his work involves reoccurring themes that include women, jazz artists and even famous people such as Madonna and Elvis.
