Born and bred in New York City, Conrad Stojak is an artist with nearly 30 years of experience working in variety of disciplines, choosing those that best suit his expressive nature.
While in high school, he interned at MoMA's P.S.1 museum working as a muralist and sculptor. In college, Conrad expanded his skills into filmmaking and has since directed two dramatic feature films and a documentary about the famed Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
Conrad has worked as a cameraman at the famed City Hall and has been honored by the former mayor of New York City for documenting “The Gates” installation by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, which inspired him to move into public art. Along with his decade long research into Hundertwasser’s bio-architecture and upcycling projects, Conrad’s goal is to create work that is both pleasing and sustainable.
Conrad's accolades include the prestigious Pollack-Krasner grant, a New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Art Development Fund grant and a writing fellowship from the Edward F. Albee Foundation. Also the Ruth Katzman scholarship from the Art Students League and a darkroom residency at the Camera Club of New York.
Conrad is currently trying to start the largest city wide arts project in the history of New York with his up-cycled parking meter art concept.
