Edward Pramuk (born 1936) is an American abstract expressionist painter. He has had numerous exhibitions in New York, Texas and Louisiana, and he taught painting, drawing, printmaking and design at Louisiana State University for 35 years. Now a retired Professor Emeritus, he currently lives and works out of his home/studio in Baton Rouge, La.
"Pramuk often works with the theme of nature in his paintings, especially marine images of the Gulf of Mexico. He also expresses his lifelong love of jazz through mixed media portraits of musicians like Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Bill Evans and Wynton Marsalis." –Ann Connelly
"I use imagined spaces, architectural motifs, and references to traditional painting to call up metaphors for my spatial concerns. I want to create a dream about the real, and at the same time to satisfy my interest in manipulating space. The fulfillment of this idea occurs when the weight of emotion generated by each pictorial situation is in harmony with an interior image. The revelation of images is the goal of my work." –Edward Pramuk
"I mainly work in acrylic on canvas and also create painted paper collages adding Polaroids, magazine clippings and other elements."
