Naoko Paluszak began her career by studying graphic design in Tokyo, followed by several years working as a designer, before switching to oil painting. Now located in the United States, Naoko continues to develop her style through different series of paintings that have varying degrees of abstraction. By bridging representational with non-representational forms, the artist seeks to stir personal memories and spark new narratives. “Art is about having a sense of mystery and drama,” she says. Naoko is also passionate about color. She mixes her paints based on the intuitive emotions that different colors can trigger within the viewer, and within herself.

About The Artist
I am looking to evoke a new concept by bridging the abstract and the figures. The solitary abstracted figure with her vibrant color palette evokes strong feelings and memories. My figures are intended to be evocatively direct.
An artist must be aware of the directions their works are going and solve problems that may occur each step of the way, while not losing focus on your aesthetic goals. Artists are a little like a scientist and a little like a performer;
You have to seek out the right formula or invent a new one to make your idea work.
I was educated at The Nihon Designer Institute in Tokyo, Japan. I worked as a graphic designer before moving to the United States. I recently won the Grand Prize at an International Art Competition held at the Ariel Gallery in New York, NY. My work has been collected by patrons in California, Arizona, Florida and Hawaii. And, I was included in Art in America’s Guide to Galleries, Museums and Artists, and The Marquis Who’s Who in the South and Southwest.
