November 28, 2017 (El Cajon) -- Ski Torzeski, an artist and resident of El Cajon, won the Second Place award in the highly competitive Member’s show, “Polar Extractions," currently at The San Diego Watercolor Society. His painting titled “Signs of Survival“ was given the honor by award-winning artist and juror, Mary Sievers.  According to Sievers, “I love how this artist captured the light. The colors and design are remarkable.”

Ski Torzeski is a nationally recognized painter whose paintings have been exhibited in the Smithsonian Institute, the UCLA Hammer Museum, and the Otis Art Institute of LA. An avid traveler, Torzeski draws his inspiration from the unique landscapes he encounters around the world. His paintings also pay homage to the natural grandeur of America’s national parks and the rugged terrain of the border states near Mexico, one of the last true frontiers in the world with its visually stunning, untouched countryside.
