Professor Kreydatus received his BFA from Syracuse University and his MFA from University of Pennsylvania.
Professor Kreydatus’ paintings, prints, and drawings focus on the figure or, on occasion, a space permeated with the figure’s heavy absence. He states, “my work is about grappling with the physicality and vulnerability of the human body and allusions to the varied life experiences and limitations that are inherent in the human condition. In my purely observational works, I want to make the familiar unfamiliar through the intense scrutiny of looking. I want my narrative works to have the heightened intensity of a fever dream”.
Professor Kreydatus has exhibited his work extensively in the US and abroad with solo exhibitions in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Washington DC and group exhibitions in New York, Australia, England, China, France, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Serbia, and Sweden.
