(American Realist 1943-    )

"To sit in John Kiraly's large, white ceramic-tiled studio and talk with him, you'd never know he was recognized around the world for his vibrant acrylic works. All you would realize is that the man is driven to create. There are dozens of projects in progress in a variety of mediums from acrylics to clay and wooden sculptures to multi-media tableaus.  And his unassuming, humble nature is refreshing in this age of celebrity pretension."

"Kiraly's works have several common denominators:  water in some form, oceans, waterfalls, fountains, et., archways, doors, and passageways and other architectural elements, usually presented in multi-levels; and lush tropical flora in exquisite detail."
