Brandon Kralik is a painter who blends a timeless classical style with a contemporary vision to create a fresh visual mythology. He was born in the United States and has spent the last 12 years of his 20 year professional painting career in Scandinavia. He painted for three years in the studio of Norwegian figurative painter Odd Nerdrum before opening his own studio in Sweden where he currently lives and works.
He majored in Fine Art at Western State College of Colorado and studied Art History, photography and film at CUNY in Manhattan. It was here that he began his evolution from being a modern artist to a contemporary classical painter.
His work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in the collections of Steven Tyler, The Crown Princess of Sweden, The Governors office of Jönköping Sweden, Matthew Barzun, who lead the financial campaign for President Obama’s re-election, and Carlos Santana, among others.
