Award-winning mural designer James Kimak (www.kimakdesign.com) has been an exhibiting painter and pastel artist since the late 1980s. It’s no accident that in 1993 he was invited to have his first solo exhibition at the Edward Hopper House Art Center in Nyack, N.Y., the birthplace of the famed American realist painter. Like Hopper, Kimak often communicates a sense of isolation through architecture and dramatic light in his work.
“The fact that buildings in my work are, or were, occupied makes one imagine the untold stories that may have taken place,” he says.
