Heronim, or Harry Wysocki, grew up in a Polish-American area of Detroit. Heronim later moved to Los Angeles, and studied his craft at the Art Center College. After traveling the world with the Merchant Marines following the end of World War II, Heronim began painting in a style influenced by the works he had seen in his travels, namely art nouveau and art deco styles. Heronim's pieces have been exhibited around the country, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Museum of Science and Industry in Los Angeles, and the San Francisco de Young Museum. Three of Heronim's prints are in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institute, and he was commissioned by Life Magazine to paint a mural called "Children of America." Heronim's paintings exhibit a nostalgia for a simpler time before the internet and multi-lane highways. He researches pictures of old lighthouses or railroad stations and draws inspiration from these sources to paint intricately details masterpieces.
