Heavily influenced by modern wildlife art master, Les Kouba, Tom Wosika communicates his intense sentiment toward nature in his work. “My whole life has been influenced by the stories Les Kouba tells with the strokes of his brush. For me, a sportsman, Les’ work just puts me in the moment.” Wosika tries to emulate that same emotion with his work.
Thorough research including photography, observation and studying other artistic styles, have helped provide Wosika with ample reference material for his work and in developing his style. In the conservation art arena, Wosika has proved a serious contender. His honors to date include twice winning the Massachusetts Primitive Arms & Archery (deer hunting) and the Minnesota trout stamp competitions.
