Naoko Paluszak
Lawrenceville, Georgia

Naoko came to the United States from Japan with a degree in graphic design from the prestigious Nihon Designer Institute in Tokyo. Her moody, surreal portraits pay tribute to fashion and the clean aesthetics of her design background. In these paintings, there is much left to the viewer’s imagination. Who are these women, and what are their thoughts and feelings? By bridging the figure with abstraction, Naoko seeks to stir personal memories and spark new narratives. She says, “art is about having a sense of mystery and drama.” Her work is collected throughout the US, and she was recently included in Art in America’s Guide to Galleries, Museums and Artists.

D Tripp purchased this artwork. 8/12/2014 | 8:10 PM

The colors in this work provided the splash that I was looking to achieve in the master bedroom of a new home that is all done in earth tones, including gold, so the hem of this angel's dress pulls it all together. thank you Naoko!

Naoko Paluszak 5/19/2014 | 3:06 PM

Susie, Your comments inspired ME very much!! Thank you for making my painting take a part of your new beginning :D

Susie purchased this artwork. 5/17/2014 | 11:43 AM

After a divorce left me with an empty house, I decided that instead of filling it quickly with "stuff", I would fill it slowly with beautiful, meaning things. This was one of the first things I purchased. I adore my angel. She is lovely and very special to me.

W Schermerhorn 5/13/2014 | 10:14 AM

I am looking for the artwork by Naoko called "Walking in Grace"

Naoko Paluszak 11/1/2013 | 8:12 PM

Thank you, M Lester, for your sweet comment! "Who are these Angels XXIII" is one of my favorites, too!! :)

M LESTER 11/1/2013 | 6:17 PM

Naoko - your work is just stunning. I am saving my money so that I can purchase Who Are These Angels XXIII. I love it!

Thank you, J. Shashaty, for your encouraging comments about my work! Most of the time being an artist is a lonely job where one struggles to obtain some sense of self justification. Hearing kind words from a new patron gives me a great feeling. Thanks again! :)

It was so hard to choose which painting to purchase, as all of them are so beautiful. But this one really stood out because of the coloring. Just gorgeous. And it looks great hung up on my red wall. I will be looking at your future work to add to my collection.
