About Fred Szabries

The artwork of Szabries has always been distinguished by one common factor: his masterful use of unusual materials. Although accomplished at working on canvas and paper, he prefers media that pushes the limits of art to the edge and beyond. Industrial" materials such as plexiglas and aluminum become, in the hands of this artist, things of uncommon beauty.

This prolific, self taught artist rapidly attracted a world-wide audience with his distinctive style. Although he has been an artist all his life, his professional career in art began in 1992; since then he has been collected internationally and his work has been displayed in galleries all over the world including, New York, Zurich, Cape Cod, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Hollywood, Atlanta, Orlando, Plantation, Key West, Sarasota and the Tampa Bay area. Two of his paintings were part of permanent set of CBS’s Golden Palace. His work has been commissioned by the United States Air Force and can be found in numerous corporate art collections including the private collection of HBO comedian Dennis Miller.

Fred Szabries has used his work to help both local and national charities. His work has benefited Masterpiece Publishing's Fine Art Foundation, The American Cancer Society, The Sertoma Club, The Arthritis Foundation and other worthy causes.

Fred Szabries was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 12, 1964. He lives somewhere in Florida.
