John Romanski was born in Brooklyn, New York. The first photograph John exhibited was with the Greenpoint Cultural Society in Brooklyn. His former years in art were spent in photography. During this early period he became involved with the Association of Williamsburg / Greenpoint Artists. This paved the way for a wider interest in art as well as exhibition opportunities. Over time John explored and worked in other visual arts.
John’s formal photography education started with the Germain School of Photography in New York City. Later on while at City College he studied under Lester L. Krauss, who also had a successful commercial photography studio in Manhattan.
Several years later John studied painting with Doug Ohlson. Afterwards he was painting under Allan D’ Arcangelo while pursuing photography with Walter Rosenblum.
John’s thirty year career includes working as a photographer and teaching. He has exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries, museums and alternative spaces in the nearby region and Eastern Europe. His work has also been exhibited in New York’s Museum of Modern Art, Salmagundi Club and the NYU Small Works Show.
John received his M.F.A. in Studio Art from Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, New York.
