Interpreting romantic figures, interiors and Parisian scenes with light, atmosphere and expressive brushwork to evoke a mood and ambience, Srebnik creates his unique style of contemporary Impressionism or “brushy tonalism” when employing more subtle color tonalities.
Srebnik has conducted art workshops at over twenty art schools, colleges and other venues; plus his “Artist’s Viewpoint” museum and gallery tours in the U.S. and France; and seminars on marketing artwork. In France, he gave painting demonstrations for the venerable Blockx paints of Belgium.
As a former principal dancer and ballet instructor, he brings a unique understanding to his ballet scenes.
