Born in Lodz, Poland in 1951, he went on to study at Lycee Francaise in Warsaw training for several years in fine art but ultimately receiving a master’s in sociology and economics. In 1977 he moved to the long-time hub of artistic renaissance and inspiration, Paris, France with his wife Joanna. It was here that he fine-tooled his signature style.
Fusing a realistic technique with romantic subject matter, Pradzynski brought the longing for past remembrances and the immediacy of living in the moment intimately together. He has said that his paintings are an attempt to romanticize the empty streets and the traces of the past and to preserve places that are slowly disappearing.
