(Born 1968, Minneapolis, Minnesota) Brezinka is on the rise and quickly gaining national acclaim and recognition. The Los Angeles Times Wesley Bausmith calls his work “Sophisticated.” The Boston Globe’s Heather Hopp-Bruce says it’s “Beautifully Crafted.” As an illustrator and contributing artist, he has been commissioned by the New York Times, Neiman Marcus, The Johnny Cash family, The Washington Post and Deloitte University Press among others. His LINCOLN portrait is currently on loan at the historic Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. through May 6, 2015 and will soon be added to The Smithsonian Institution Catalog of American Portraits Documentation and Research Center.

Through a unique combination of vintage and found ephemera, cut paper, collage and mixed mediums, Brezinka creates and sculpts these items into unique images and works art.

O’More College of Design proudly presents Paper Cuts: Discarded Illusions and Found Realities, a solo exhibition by Nashville-based artist Wayne Brezinka. This exhibition premieres Brezinka’s most recent body of work, a cohesive group of cut paper, collage, mixed media and installation works created over the last year and a half. Seen as a whole, the work reveals the importance of our humanity, laying bare the discarded illusions and found realities that we all encounter on our own journeys.
