A graduate of Connecticut College, Krawczyk has studied fine art throughout Europe and apprenticed with various acclaimed sculptors. He realizes his biomorphic sculptures by cutting sheet stainless steel or bronze and welding, pounding and shaping with focused heat. Each sculpture is therefore unique, as the works are never cast from a mold.

Krawczyk draws inspiration from artists such as Picasso, Henry Moore and David Smith. He is not only influenced by the obvious masterful techniques of these artists, but also by their philosophies of the sculptural process.

Jon Krawczyk works in stainless steel, either brushed or highly polished, and in bronze, to which he applies intense patinas of earth tones and bright blues and greens. These works appear to have the geological marks of boulders, as sentinels that look comfortable in natural environments, can be abstract tendrils or wispy smoke-like forms that defy gravity, or long, thin, yet powerful lines that seem to jump into the sky. His most recent highly polished stainless steel sculptures are truly amazing in a natural environment, where they reflect their surroundings in surprising ways.

Krawczyk is shown in selected galleries throughout the USA. He has created commissioned sculptures for public and corporate clients, such as LinkedIn (his most recent and largest commission at 200 feet long), Apple, Four Season Hotels, Trump Hotel, the SF Giants' AT&T Park and the SF 49ers Stadium. Krawczyk also garnered national attention for his 9/11 Memorial at St. Peter's Cathedral in NYC.
