William  J.  Kalwick, Jr.

Figurative and portrait artist, William Kalwick’s first art instructor was his late father who had studied with Lajos Markos.  William also attended the Arts Student League in New York.  Upon completing his studies in New York he moved to Houston, where he still lives and works, to become the protégé of Lajos Markos.

Kalwick’s vivid palette and impressionistic style combine beautifully to showcase his largely South American and European subject matter.  He is also a highly sought after commission portrait artist.

In a profile in Focus/Santa Fe magazine, Kalwick was quoted as saying, “I started with a strong European influence, and now I see my style changing.”  In addition to Markos, he credits other influences to Sorolla, Repin, Zorn, Serov and Sargent, all artists noted for their expressive works.

This talented artist has been featured in articles in Southwest Art and Art of the West.  He has also participated in many shows including Masters of the American West at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles, the Prix de West at the Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City and the annual show at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa.
