of the interdependence of architecture, sculptures, painting and applied art, and his knowledge of these diverse disciplines
have shaped his career and found expression in his art. Through experimentation
he has developed his own artistic method, one that has freed him from the constraints of traditional watercolor techniques. Krannyansky’s innovative inclusion of paper texture into the creative process
is a dynamic component of his art, resulting in an expansion of the medium’s potential.
He is one of the first artists to elevate the watercolor medium to the expressive possibilities usually associated
with oil painting. Bordering on the surreal, Krasnyansky’s figures never
depart from the recognizable. His art, altogether new in form, contain echoes of the artist’s Eastern Heritage, the
cubist ideas of Picasso and Braque and the modernity and energy of American Culture, They are lyrical and yet possess a human
presence and combine his faith in the human spirit with a rigorous artistic substance and foundation.
