Nicholas Krushenick
Date: American painter, 1929–1999
Biography: Nicholas Krushenick was born in New York and studied at the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts and the Art Students League. He and his brother established a framing shop on Tenth Street, which evolved into the Brata Gallery. In 1962, the artist left the gallery business and pursued his art making full time with solo exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad. Krushenick is considered by many to be the initiator of Pop abstraction, a style that combined the sensibilities of Op art, Pop art, and Abstract Expressionism.
