Scott KranyakMany subjects fascinate and inspire me, and are the basis for my art: nature, wildife, landscapes, ghoulish images that I paint on vintage photos, nudes, etc. But there is no subject that touches me like my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. Though I have been living out west for a number of years now, Cleveland is never far from my heart. I miss Cleveland, and I am constantly talking up Cleveland to as many people as I can. I'm proud to call Cleveland home, and I hope that this exhibit exudes that pride. I have lived in and visited many other supposedly superior cities in this country, and Cleveland has just a much to offer, if not more, than all of them. I just hope that our elected leaders start looking towards the future in a more progressive way to help Cleveland grow and flourish in these new, post-industrial times. Cleveland Rocks!!!!!!
