About Winston Chmielinski

Brooklyn, NY

Winston Chmielinski (b. 1988 in Boston, MA) engages with painting through organic dissolutions and reconstitutions of the figure. Forms forego their contours, suspending Chmielinski's paintings out of narration and into insistence—of paint, of presence, and of perception.

Following a critically acclaimed solo exhibition in New York City last November, Winston went on to showcase his paintings at the Volta NY 2013 Art Fair, and was featured in a video spotlight as one of five representing artists from the fair. This video can be seen here:

In September 2013 Winston was named one of the 25 Best Artists 25 and Under by Complex Magazine.

Winston's recent commissions include the album cover design for Daniel Bjarnason (2013), PVT (2012), and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (2011) which was included in the BBC's Top 50 Album Sleeves of 2011.

Winston lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
