Art In Motion
South Florida native and sculptor Gary Traczyk is a firefighter and paramedic with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and one of few polished stainless steel kinetic sculptors in the world. He attended New World School of the Arts, holds two Bachelor's degrees and three Associates degrees, studied theater and minored in art.
To say he's an overachiever is an understatement, having learned this rare art form in college from his friend's father and having honed the craft to ensure it wouldn't die. Gary believes in giving back through art and is often a guest teacher at Palmetto Middle School through its "Visiting Artists" program.
Gary opened the new season of HGTV's television show "That's Clever". His work has been shown in Miami, Palm Springs, Laguna Beach, Brentwood, Beverly Hills, Malibu, La Jolla, and other cities across the U.S. Gary's stainless steel kinetic sculptures are delicately balanced works of art inspired by spiritual emotion and expression. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and challenges the mind to wander in a meditative state of discovery.
