Art Biography English
Eric Baronsky is of French/Ukrainian/Polish/ decent. He was born in Paris, France; however, from the age of two he was raised by his single mother in Grenwich Village (New York City). In 1980 the two relocated to Hollywood, California. There, Baronsky attended high school and later university where he studied film production and music composition, with a minor in philosophy. His mother passed away shortly after receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1986. This marked the beginning of his quest to travel the world in an attempt to better understand the universal nature of being.
A couple of years later, he resettled in Los Angeles to pursue his earlier ambitions of filmmaking. There he worked up the industry ranks, eventually becoming a documentary / television commercial Producer and Director. In 1992, however, he returned to France, fueled with a renewed desire to rediscover his family roots and culture. Shortly after arriving he applied and was accepted at the Conservatoire National de Music in Strasbourg. There, he lived in a picturesque farmhouse along the Rhein River where he concentrated on studying the works of Wagner and Chopin. This period greatly influenced many of his original compositions and continues to do the same for his mostly landscape inspired, dream-like paintings and photography.
Baronsky's psyche later shifted causing him to revisit the United States. An opportunity to start a design and production firm was presented to him during his stay and so the planned short trip evolved into a more significant venture. He took the chance in altering his professional music interest and proceeded to grow a highly successful, multi-national creative company that serviced the advertising and theme park industries. The jet-setting pace ended abruptly, however, when a nearly fatal scuba diving accident caused him to reflect on his life's path. In 2006, a sequence of other profound events then caused him to take a sabbatical. During this introspective period he realized an inner need that was greater than achieving the proverbial "American Dream".
In 2007 Baronsky returned to Paris. There he fervently began studying art on his own, with other local artists and at the renowned L'Académie de la Grande Chaumière while developing much inspiration from the master oeuvres of Rothko, Turner, Poliakoff, de Staël, de Kooning, Miro, Eugène Leroy, Joan Mitchell and Zao Wu Ki.
