Julian Stanczak (b. 1928) is an American painter and printmaker known for his geometric paintings and compositions based on structures of color. Born in Borownica, Poland, he attended Borough Polytechnic Institute in London and immigrated to the United States in 1950. He later studied at The Cleveland Institute of Art and Yale University. His work in the early 1960s employed wavy lines and contrasting colors to the make the surface plans of his works more dynamic, illustrated in his piece Provocative Current (1965). His work developed into compositions of different geometrical shapes that also incorporated many levels of color transparency. He has exhibited his work at the Martha Jackson Gallery and The Museum of Modern Art, both in New York.
