Corey Sokolnicki
Corey Sokolnicki

The level of excitement with which Corey Sokolnicki approaches a new artistic challenge is enviable. His frenetic illustrations capture his energy, and it is no surprise that he enjoys drawing things that move. Cars, planes, and army tanks fill his many sketchbooks along with his imaginative “critters”. Corey aptly compares his style to Wassily Kandinsky who shares his affinity for bold lines and colorful geometric shapes. Corey enjoys both illustration and painting, and many of his works are accompanied by an imaginative story.

 

His love of art extends to his time outside of the studio. He is a huge supporter of the arts and attends many shows and festivals with his mother, Sue. Corey currently shares a home in central Ohio with his wife but has lived in several different states while growing up. Corey finds the creation of art to be extremely fun, and all of his works emit his positive energy.
